Thousands of civilians have been killed in US-led airstrikes and drone strikes

The Pentagon has recently released some important documents about the attacks, according to the New York Times.

The US administration launched the global war on terror shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States. They invaded first Afghanistan and then Iraq. It mainly disrupted the two countries with air and drone strikes. The New York Times recently released some important documents from the Pentagon.

The New York Times reports that more than 1,400 U.S. airstrikes and drone strikes have killed thousands of civilians in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan since 2003. The Pentagon has not yet commented on the allegations. Only 100 U.S. investigative teams were dispatched to the scene to investigate. They did not interview any eyewitnesses at that time. The investigation team’s report also claimed that no civilians were injured in the attack.

On the other hand, the US investigation team shows some activity in 216 attacks. Although the general public admitted that there were casualties, the investigation team was sent to only one incident. The actual number of casualties is suppressed in their report. No members of the US military have been charged in connection with the killings. Nor was any compensation given to the families of the victims. The U.S. military says in a statement that it had not received any information about the intelligence before the attack.

In 2016, 120 civilians were killed in a US drone strike in Syria. The Pentagon has claimed that 65 armed terrorists were killed in the attack. The New York Times claims that the actual number of casualties is more than 120, although it acknowledges that 24 Syrian civilians were killed in another attack.

According to a joint report released by various observer groups around the world this year, some 50,000 civilians have been killed in US attacks since the 9/11 attacks. However, in most cases, the US administration has not acknowledged the civilian casualties.
