Pentagon Claims To Have Only Killed 352 Civilians Since The Start Of The ISIS Air Campaign

Reuters: U.S.-led fight on ISIS have killed 352 civilians: Pentagon

At least 352 civilians have been killed in U.S.-led strikes against Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria since the operation began in 2014, the U.S. military said in a statement on Sunday.

The Combined Joint Task Force, in its monthly assessment of civilian casualties from the U.S. coalition's operations against the militant group, said it was still assessing 42 reports of civilian deaths.

It added that 45 civilians were killed between November 2016 and March 2017. It reported 80 civilian deaths from August 2014 to the present that had not previously been announced. The report included 26 deaths from three separate strikes in March.

The military's official tally is far below those of other outside groups. Monitoring group Airwars said more than 3,000 civilians have been killed by coalition air strikes.

How many have the Russians killed?

How any civilians has the Syrian Air Force killed?

How many has Hezbollah or the Iranian killed?

If its 352 then that is remarkably low and a tribute to the professionalisim of coalition airforces and forward observers.
If it is 3000 etc then the question must be asked how and my guess would be the blame would largley lie with isis embedding themselves amongst civilians or coalition pilots operating on faulty intel from Iraqi forces on the ground .
One civilian loss in war is tragic but put it in to perspective of dresden when a primarily civilian target was hit with 35 to 100.000 civilluans killed in 24 hours without the world batting an eyelid and even commissionioning a statue to commerate the war criminal bomber harris.
The u.s should be commended for there care in minimising civilian losses not chastised.
