US strikes may have killed 119 civilians in Iraq, Syria: Pentagon

The United States, which carries out 80 percent of the coalition bombing in Iraq and Syria, says it uses precision-guided munitions that limit civilian casualtiesThe Pentagon said Wednesday that US air strikes in Iraq and Syria against the Islamic State group may have killed 119 civilians since 2014, a figure far lower than casualty estimates by monitoring groups. The figures released by Centcom, the US military command in the Middle East, came from a months-long review of reports and databases, it said, adding that the deaths and injuries stemmed from 24 air strikes. London-based NGO Airways estimates coalition bombing has killed 1,787 civilians since the air campaign to destroy the Islamic State group began in August 2014.
