Raqqa: US-Led Coalition Warplanes Continue to Massacre Syrian Civilians

18 Syrian civilians, including six children under the age of six and four women were killed and several more were wounded in the US-led coalition fighter jets' raids in al-Matab town in the Eastern countryside of Raqqa.


The US army had previously claimed that only 220 civilians were killed in the air attacks of the coalition under its command in Syria and Iraq in 2014.

The US command also noted that it could not investigate all reports of possible civilian casualties using “traditional investigative methods,” which involves interviewing witnesses and examining the site of the strike.

Instead, the coalition interviewed pilots and servicemen that took part in combat missions to draw results. The US command also reviewed strike surveillance videos and analyzed government and non-governmental organizations’ traditional and social media content.

In the meantime, Iraq Body Count's website disclosed that 2,316 civilians were killed in air raids of the so-called anti-ISIL coalition only in Iraq since September1, 2014 till September1, 2016.

The US army declared estimates of 220 casualties fall far below the number voiced by some monitoring groups.
