The Coalition’s air strikes and military operation in Raqqa led to at least 173 people dead. This was reported by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

In a report sent to the Security Council and published on the organization’s website on Wednesday, he stressed that at least 173 people had been killed in Raqqa in June, and dozens of civilians were seriously injured.

The Secretary General stressed that the Coalition forces should fight not against civilian population, but against ISIS terrorists. In addition, he urged the Coalition command to carefully monitor the accuracy of the air strikes.
