Influential international human rights organization Amnesty International accused USA for killing 300 civilians in Iraq and Syria.

“Eleven Coalition attacks examined by the organization appear to have killed some 300 civilians during two years of strikes”, reads Amnesty Inernational article titiled “USA must come clean about civilian deaths caused by Coalition air strikes in Syria”.

«It’s high time the US authorities came clean about the full extent of the civilian damage caused by Coalition attacks in Syria», says Lynn Maalouf, Deputy Director for Research at Amnesty International’s Beirut regional office.

CENTCOM has acknowledged responsibility for only one death connected with the airstrikes, — AI report reads.

So far the US authorities have provided no response to a memorandum Amnesty International sent to the US Department of Defense on 28 September 2016 to raise questions about the conduct of Coalition forces in Syria. The memorandum compiles and analyzes information from  various sources, including eyewitnesses to attacks, which suggests that US Central Command (CENTCOM), which directs Coalition forces in Syria, may have failed to take necessary precautions to spare civilians and carried out unlawful attacks that have killed and injured civilians.

«Analysis of available evidence suggests that in each of these cases, Coalition forces failed to take adequate precautions to minimize harm to civilians and damage to civilian objects. Some of these attacks may constitute disproportionate or otherwise indiscriminate attacks.

«Given the likely increase in air strikes by the US-led Coalition as part of the Iraqi offensive to recapture Mosul, it is even more pressing that CENTCOM be fully transparent about the impact of their military actions on civilians. And it is crucial that they adhere scrupulously to international humanitarian law, including by taking all feasible precautions to spare civilians and to minimize harm to civilian homes and infrastructure,” said Lynn Maalouf of AI.

As reported before Russian MOD General Staff announced that US AF plane destroyed girls' school in Mosul. «Quite a number of social objects were destroyed», — told Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff Sergey Rudskoy.

On October 22 residential quarters of Karakosh which is 20 km to the East of Mosul and Hazna, 15 km to the East were shelled and attacked.

On October 23 the Americans carried out missile and bombing raid on Karakharab (17 km to the North of Mosul) and Ash-Shurah which is 34 km to the South.

Operation in Mosul

In response to attacks launched by Iraqi governmental forces and Peshmerga Kurdish units ISIS* terrorirsts changed their positions and shifte control zone to Syrian-Jordan border. The terrorists are not going to capitulate or surrender. At the moment ISIS fighters have managed to capture Iraqi town Rutba.

Besides they started to burn oil in numerous tenches around Mosul trying to recapture the territory from governmental forces. Ground forces may be left without air-cover because of huge plumes of smok.

ISIS took all the efforts to minimize losses including their tried and true tactics of live shields and leaving hundreds of mines behind them.

As Mosul operation commenced ISIS began to resort to sudden attack tactics trying to avert attention from Mosul positions. As it was in Kirquq for example.

As reported by «Russian Spring», ISIS terrorists took more than 200 civilian residents as hostages in Iraqi Kirquq province.
