BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:15 P.M.) – The US-led anti-ISIL Coalition has killed at least 43 civilians and wounded dozens of others in their bombing campaign over Raqqa City these past 48 hours, the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

According to the opposition monitor, the US Coalition warplanes targeted civilian areas in the central and western neighborhoods of Raqqa City.

One airstrike was reported to have hit the Raqqa National Hospital, killing more than ten people in the process.

The U.S. has not issued a statement regarding this new allegation.

Murdering civilians has always been what the US military do best.

SOHR is the Coventry based guy in the cave of his clothes shop that used to charge Russian and Syrian militaries at killing civilians and bombing hospitals in Aleppo…
He had his infos through Nusra “activists”, now he has his infos through IS “activists”.
MI5 should consider monitoring this guy.
He’s probably clean but may have interesting contacts…

He is not ‘clean ‘. he is a criminal who was imprisoned in Syria and who went to England after his release. He gets paid for what he writes by Western/ Takfiri sources.

Why would MI5 monitor him? He’s almost certainly a paid asset of their colleagues in MI6.

Anyway, I’m inclined to trust SOHR about as far as I can throw the apartment it’s based in, but given its long record of being comically pro-whateverthewestwants, it may be somewhat trustworthy when it reports things that make the US look bad.
