Pentagon: US strikes may have killed 119 civilians in Iraq, Syria since 2014
Washington - Arab Today

The Pentagon said on Wednesday that US air strikes in Iraq and Syria against Daesh may have killed 119 civilians since 2014.

The figures released by Centcom, the US military command in the Middle East, came from a months-long review of reports and databases, it said, adding that the deaths and injuries stemmed from 24 air strikes.

"We have teams who work full time to prevent unintended civilian casualties," Colonel John Thomas was quoted as saying in the Centcom statement.

"We do all we can to minimize those occurrences even at the cost of sometimes missing the chance to strike valid targets in real time."

The Pentagon's investigation found that "in each of these strikes the right processes were followed; each complied with Law of Armed Conflict and significant precautions were taken, despite the unfortunate outcome," Thomas said.

The US, which carries out 80 percent of the coalition bombing, says it uses precision-guided munitions that limit civilian casualties.
