The British Royal Air Force killed 4,013 ISIS members and injured 302 others in Syria and Iraq in the period since September 2014 to January 2019. The British Defense Ministry said that it was responsible for one civilian casualties only.
According to the report:
- 2,994 ISIS members were were killed and 235 were wounded in Iraq;
- 1,019 ISIS members were killed and 67 were wounded in Syria.
The British military said its data came from “the best available post-strike analysis” – video and photos taken from the air.
The US-led coalition, in the framework of which the British Royal Air Force operates, says it conducted a total of 33,921 strikes in the period from August 2014 and end of January 2019. It claims that at least 1,257 civilians were unintentionally killed by during this period.
It should be noted that the very same country, which claims hat only one civilian was killed by its airstrikes in Syria and Iraq during the last 4 years, has repeatedly accused the Assad government of employing chemical weapons against “moderate” members of al-Qaeda across Syria.
