On Saturday, CENTCOM issued a statement in which acknowledged that US-led coalition jets killed 21 civilians in 9 separate strikes in Syria and Iraq. “Nine reports were assessed to be credible resulting in the unintended death of 21 and injury to two civilians,” CENTCOM said.
In total, in January, Pentagon received 27 reports of human casualties in the coalition’s airstrikes against ISIS. Ten of the reports were considered “non-credible” while another 19 (including the ones from the previous months) are still being assessed.
New casualty figures raise the civilian death toll of the US-led coalition to 220 people from 2014.
