UN: American air strike in Syria has resulted in the death of hundreds of civilians

28
The air strikes inflicted by the US-led coalition in the Syrian city of Raqqah led to the deaths of hundreds of civilians and left 160 thousands of city residents homeless, reports The New York Times, citing UN officials. According to some data, since the beginning of the American operation during the air strikes, more than 3 thousand civilians in Syria and Iraq have died. "Sight".

Air strikes became more frequent when the American-backed militia, known as the “Syrian Democratic Forces”, recently launched an assault on Raqqa, the “capital” of the IG, held by the Islamists since 2014,
- notes The New York Times
In particular, we note that the intensification of airstrikes (which “paved the way” for SDS moving toward Raqqah) led not only to the overwhelming death of a peaceful life, but also to the fact that 160 thousand civilians left their homes
- Said Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, a Brazilian diplomat who heads the UN team of experts.



Since 21 March as a result of air strikes, 300 civilians were killed, a member of the commission Karen Abuzaid told reporters in Geneva. She specified that this number includes 200 civilians killed as a result of a blow to the school building in the city of El Mansur.

The attack on Al-Mansuru occurred on the day when a US-led coalition launched 19 attacks on targets near Raqqa and a week after 49 people died (then coalition aircraft attacked Al-Gina village in western Aleppo province). In the latter case, instead of the building where the al-Qaeda militia meeting took place, the mosque was hit — which the Pentagon later acknowledged.

The Airwars portal, cited by the New York Times, reports: from the beginning of the US operation and its coalition partners against ISIS * (August 2014 of the year) to March 2017, at least 3100 civilians were killed in air strikes in Iraq and Syria. This is more than eight times more than the number of casualties recognized by the US military (they report 352 dead).

The urgent need to combat terrorism should not, however, be at the expense of civilians who inevitably are in areas where ISIL is present.
- stressed Paulo Pinheiro.

The New York Times notes: the return of Raqqa "will be a serious step in the quest to eliminate IS domination in Syrian territory, and in a clash between the government of President Bashar Assad (supported by Russia and Iran) and the rebel forces that support the United States and the Arab powers in the region. This collision will determine the future of Syria, concludes the publication.

    It should be noted that from time to time the effectiveness of strikes is increasing. Learn however.

            Has this ever bothered Americans? Suffice it to recall Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the carpet and napalm bombing of Vietnam, the bombing of Belgrade

      Even when there was a war in Iraq, I read the statements of the British military. So they directly criticized the Americans that they basically did not conduct intelligence among the population, they did not buy informants for themselves, and any situation that was not clear to them ended with sending a bomber there and only then they figure it out.
      So nothing has changed over the years, and you're talking about accuracy

      In general, the Americans have long mastered the technology of fire tornadoes resulting from the carpet bombing of the city. This they began to do since 1942. And now they just bomb and do not bother - tens, hundreds or thousands of dead civilians, what's the difference ?! What difference can there be for those who used nuclear weapons in peaceful Japanese cities and turned hundreds of thousands of peaceful Germans to ashes? !!

    It testifies of only one thing: the United States is all to the point. They will not give up their policies. And therefore, all Trump supporters need to understand that Russia has three real and permanent allies - the army, navy and Strategic Rocket Forces.
    Everything else is blah blah blah ...
    The only question is what is keeping these allies up to the mark. What is needed is far from the raw material colonial economy of DAM and its government, and one cannot do without a rating of the President.
    You need to work, that’s such a misfortune. And they are used to sawing only oil and gas loot.
    In a word, there is one essence, if everyone is strong with you, and you must be strong in everything, otherwise they will bomb your allies in Syria, and not only.

    What bombed? Strategists strewed like Germany at one time? as many as 160 thousand people. left homeless?

    The permissiveness of the Western "barbarian" civilization is shocking, the Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians are also subhuman for them, so if you want to, you need to unite and put in place the gobliners who have sunk the world in the blood of the Anglo-Saxons with their American and Euro-backed minions

    And our Aleppo airstrike resurrected hundreds of civilians and built 160 thousand new homes? It is clear that the mattresses lost their shores and nobody called them there, but what is the article about?

      An article about the fact that the videos of the "white helmets" are not visible, about the bleeding of hungry Syrians.

      Oddly enough, the strikes of the Russian air forces and the Syrian air force were sparing and pointed. And this is a massive airstrike. In vain you distort. And no one yells at exceptional comments so dry everywhere. Someday, Amersia will be paid for everything.

    On TV, less and less news from Syria. A legitimate question, did everyone calculate when they stood up for Assad? In fact, there will be no single Syria ...

    I am always happy that when the Russian Federation / USA / Israel bombes any Arab country, they will definitely kill EXCLUSIVELY PEACE residents. Are missile guidance heads aimed exclusively at schools / hospitals / mosques / weddings?

        The return usually looks like a group of "admirers of one peaceful religion" with knives on the streets of London or an explosion in the St. Petersburg metro.

    Mattresses, as always in their repertoire, carry out high-precision carpet bombardments on, after scrupulous reconnaissance, randomly chosen areas!

    ".. at least 3100 civilians died from airstrikes. This is more than eight times the number of victims recognized by the US military (they report 352 dead)."
    Why are we surprised? The world is visible through American air sights ..
    It looks ... completely different ...
    What do we think ... For example ...
    On the morning of August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima ..
    Participants in the bombing until the end of their days did not regret the operation.
    You think ... the Syrians are ... More expensive?
