A pro-opposition monitoring group says US airstrikes have killed 3,331 civilians in Syria since they began four years ago.
“Among those killed are 826 children and 615 women,” said head of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Rami Abdel-Rahman.
The US and its allies have been bombarding what they call Daesh positions inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate. Such air raids began in Iraq in August of the same year.
The aerial assaults, however, have on many occasions resulted in civilian casualties and failed to fulfill their declared aim of countering terrorism.
