US led coalition says 11 civilians killed unintentionally

WASHINGTON Forty five civilian casualty allegation assessment reports resulted in determining 11 unintentional civilian deaths, the US led Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF OIR) announced Thursday.

In the month of December, CJTF OIR carried over 82 open reports from previous months and received 41 new reports.

CJTF OIR said in its monthly report, the Coalition conducted 34,763 strikes between August 2014 and the end of December 2019.

During this period, based on information available, CJTF OIR assesses at least 1,370 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition actions since the beginning of Operation Inherent Resolve.

A “non credible” evaluation means that the information we have to assess the allegation, using our available resources, cannot determine, to the standard of “more likely than not”, that the death was the result of Coalition action.
