Media: Canadian air force may be involved in the death of civilians in Iraq

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation CBC has become aware of the results of an internal investigation by the Pentagon, which refers to the Canadian air force strikes in Iraq on a “dubious” object that led to the death of civilians, reports RIA News.

Media: Canadian air force may be involved in the death of civilians in Iraq

The aforementioned event took place 21 December last year in the city of Fallujah (Iraq). "This is a joint bombing of the Air Force of Canada and Australia" alleged weapons factory, when, after the application of air strikes, a woman and a child came out of the building, "the newspaper writes.

"The child was taken by an unknown person on a motorcycle to the hospital, and the woman lay down on the edge of the road and did not get up anymore," the Pentagon report says.

CBC sought clarification from Liz Bourgeau, head of the Iraqi air campaign, but said she did not know anything about the incident. At the same time, Bourgeaud noted that "the command is particularly serious about reports of civilian casualties."

Earlier, the new Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, announced his intention to "stop the participation of the country's Air Force aircraft in the military operation against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq."

    Yes, not only Canada. All members of the Western coalition do not sin to bomb civilians, attributing this to collateral losses.

      But not everyone gets a reproach from their own pack for this. It is quite possible that this is a "stick" for refusing to participate in the bombing of Syria, or maybe just a coincidence.

        I completely agree, this is because of the position on Syria.
        It’s even funny to read, a woman and a child came out, a woman fell and did not rise anymore.
        Why do these scum about the bombed hospital nothing to write, there is not the Canadian Air Force struck ?! Why are they silent about phosphorus bombs in the same Fallujah, from which thousands of people died.
        It is clearly seen how the master of his servants is trying to restrain himself. Ugh ...

      All of them are oiled in one world. As for the conscience of the consolidated west, there wasn’t much of it before, but now it has completely evaporated like snow in the spring.

      This is the first warning to Canadians for leaving the coalition aviation group. Could and still dig up cases and really condemn by an American court

    So what? Yes, how many civilians they have already killed! And has anyone ever been held responsible? No. Don't even apologize.

    Therefore, in recent days, such a rush on Russia about the alleged bombing of the wrong medical institutions. Moreover, the information is instantly replicated by the Western media without any rechecking. And the fact that the coalition led by the United States periodically inflicted strikes on civilian targets emerges later and with great difficulty. Moreover, no one is responsible for this. This is how she is "democracy and freedom of speech."

    so for this you need to conduct a routine investigation. And who needs it? Remember there was such an unofficial Russell-Sartre Tribunal for Vietnam? And did anyone pay attention to the voice of the blatant intelligentsia? As long as the "justice of the hegemon" is in effect, all this will calmly be written off to military expenses, alas.

    It seems that the third world war will begin due to the struggle of Western countries for the right to bomb civilians!

    Ha, ha ... We decided to dump the "international coalition" from the organized criminal group without the permission of Uncle Sam in the fight against the Syrian Army, get it in the disloyal face so that next time it will be discouraged ...
