International coalition says 892 civilians killed in Iraq, Syria operations

 

 

Operations by the U.S.-led international coalition against the Islamic State have killed 892 civilians since it started its offensives in 2014, the United States Central Command said.

“The Coalition conducted a total of 29,358 strikes between August 2014 and end of April 2018. During this period, based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 892 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve”.

Late April, the coalition announced it had ended its land operations in Iraq, shifting to training and consultancy roles backing the Iraqi forces.

The Iraqi government declared last December that its operations, backed by the coalition, managed to retake all areas occupied by IS militants since 2014.
