Pentagon investigating report that US-led airstrike killed more than 100 civilians in Iraq


The Pentagon on Friday acknowledged that the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria carried out an airstrike in a western Mosul neighborhood and that it is “looking into” reports that the bombing left more than 100 civilians dead.

“We are aware of reports on airstrikes in Mosul resulting in civil casualties,” Eric Pahon, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement to Fox News. “The Coalition conducted several strikes near Mosul and [coalition forces are] looking in to these reports. The Department of Defense takes all reports of civil legalties very seriously and assesses all incidents as thoroughly as possible. “

The suspected civil body count underscores the problems that Iraqi troops face in their weeks-long campaign to drive out the Sunni militant group from the densely urban part of Iraq’s second-largest city.

Residents of the neighborhood where the airstrike occurred, known as Mosul Jidideh, told a team of Associated Press correspondents at the scene that scores of residents are believed to have been killed by a pair of airstrikes that hit a cluster of homes in the area earlier this Month.

“Over 137 people were inside. The entire neighborhood was fleeing because of missiles that hit, so people were taking refuge here,” said Ahmed Ahmed, one of the residents of the neighborhood.

One airstrike hit the residential area on March 13, followed by a second strike four days later, the residents said.

The Department of Defense takes all reports of civilicialcies very seriously and assesses all incidents as thoroughly as possible.

– Eric Pahon, a Pentagon spokesman

Faced with their most difficult fight yet against ISIS, Iraqi and the US-led coalition forces have increasingly turned to airstrikes and artillery to clear and hold territory in Iraq.

As of March 14 of this year, the US alone has carried out over 7,700 airstrikes in Iraq – many centered around the ISIS stronghold in Mosul – while coalition forces have conducted an additional 3,634 airstrikes in the war-plagued Middle Eastern nation. The military intervention against ISIS – dubbed Operation Inherent Resolve – has involved almost 19,000 airstrikes in Syria and Iraq since 2014.

The Pentagon’s announcement on Friday comes two days after it reported it was investigating claims that a US military airstrike recently hit a school in northern Syria and allegedly killed dozens of civilians. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group, said that at least 33 bodies were dropped from the rubble at the school, which had housed at least 50 families fleeing violence elsewhere in the war-torn nation.

Dozens of civilians were also purportedly killed last week when a strike on an al-Qaida target blasted a prayer hall in the town of Jinah, in Syria’s Aleppo province. While the Pentagon, which opened an investigation into the bombing, said that numerous al-Qaida fighters were killed in the strike, local residents claim the dead were civilians who had gathered for a religious class.

The Pentagon, which has yet to release casualty figures from last month’s fighting, has acknowledged 220 civil deaths from coal airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since its campaign against ISIS began in 2014. Independent monitoring groups, such as the London-based Airwars , put the Casualty figures much higher, at just over 2,700 killed by coalitions strikes since 2014.

The US is conducting strikes on IS daily from bases in Jordan, Turkey and elsewhere in the region. US military commanders have also raised the prospect of sending additional forces into the region to be ready to assist in accelerating the fight in either Syria or Iraq.

America is imposing new sanctions including the UAE, Syria, China and North Korea

America is imposing new sanctions including the UAE, Syria, China and North Korea

Follow-up / Sky Press:

The United States on Friday imposed sanctions on 30 foreign entities and individuals over the transfer of sensitive technology to Iran for its missile program or for violating export restrictions on Iran, North Korea and Syria.

“Eleven companies and individuals from China, North Korea and the UAE have been penalized for the transfer of technology that could boost the ballistic missile program in Iran,” the State Department said in a statement.

“Penalties have been imposed on 19 entities or individuals for other violations under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) on Iran, North Korea and Syria, and it is believed that individuals and entities covered by sanctions have transferred or possessed sensitive technology that could contribute to the development of weapons of mass destruction.”


US troops to stay in Iraq after fight against ISIS ends – Defense Dept. Officials


US troops to stay in Iraq after fight against ISIS ends - Defense Dept. Officials
American troops will probably remain in Iraq even when the fight against Islamic State has ended, according to Pentagon officials, including US Defense Secretary James Mattis, who said that keeping soldiers on the ground is in America’s “national interest.”

The US Defense Department’s top officials expressed their desire to keep US troops in Iraq at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on Wednesday.

Mattis made it clear that US occupation will not end when Mosul is finally captured from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS / ISIL).

“I believe it’s in our national interest that we keep Iraqi security forces in a position to keep our mutual enemies on their back foot,” he said, as quoted by the Military Times.

The defense secretary went on to say that he does not see any reason to pull out again and face the same lesson, adding that the US “needs to remain decisively engaged in Iraq and in the region.”

Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford Jr. Agreed with Mattis, stating that Iraqi security forces will need US support “for years to come.”

The comments come as the brutal battle continues for Mosul, the self-proclaimed capital of IS in Iraq.

Around 400,000 civilians are stuck in Mosul’s old city, which is currently held by IS militants. They are facing food and electricity shortages, with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees believing the “worst is yet to come.”

US involvement in the military campaign against IS is approaching its third anniversary, evolving from airstrikes in the summer of 2014 to the temporary deployment of around 6,000 ground troops across Iraq and Syria, which Washington mostly calls “advisers.”

During a Tuesday meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, US President Donald Trump himself said that American troops should remain in Iraq.

“Certainly, we should not have left. We should never ever have left, “ Trump said as quoted by Newsweek, noting that the withdrawal was followed by chaos.

But Abadi appears to have another plan in mind, condemning last week that the international military presence in Iraq should be reduced once IS militants are defeated.

“As we are crushing Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for IS], it is clear that there is a need to reduce the number of our allies who are helping us,” he told Middle East Eye.

Around half a million people died in Iraq from war-related causes during the US-led intervention between 2003 and mid-2011, according to a study published in 2013. That figure was around four times larger than previous estimates.

A separate 2013 study found that the Iraq War cost $ 1.7 trillion, with an additional $ 490 billion owed to war veterans, noting that the expenses could grow around $ 4 trillion over the next four decades, counting interest.

Earlier this week, Abadi reportedly said that reconstruction Mosul and the reconstruction of Anbar province could cost up to $ 50 billion in the coming years.

Mattis acknowledged a financial need for re-building, but stressed that the US will not be solely responsible for the bill.

“It’s going to be an international effort, it should not be fully charged by the American taxpayer,” he said on Wednesday. “But we should certainly be part of it.”
