The US Army had admitted that airstrikes that were meant to target ISIS in Syria and Iraq have killed 5 civilians and injured a further 8.
The US Army also admitted yesterday that one strike in the Syrian city of Raqqa that successfully killed ISIS cyber-operative Junaid Hussain, also killed another 3 civilians.
“It was assessed three civilians in the vicinity of the strikes were killed and five more were injured,” said the Central Command, which is in charge of American forces in the Middle East and North Africa.
The US Army also admitted to killing another 2 civilians and injuring 3 on an airstrike near Sinjar in northern Iraq.
“We deeply regret the unintentional loss of life and injuries resulting from those strikes,” the Centcom statement said.
The US have no authorization from Damascus or the United Nations to be conducting airstrikes within Syrian airspace.
The US-led coalition has garnered criticisms as ISIS had only expanded since the airstrikes began in August 2014. These criticisms began when Russian airstrikes began in Syria on September 30, 2015, which has since led to the contraction of ISIS held territory in the country.
