MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The civilian death toll from the airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition against the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) jihadist group could reach 1,000 "within days," local media reported Sunday, citing a monitoring NGO.

The US-led coalition of over 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against the positions of Daesh in both Syria and Iraq since 2014.

The number of civilian casualties from the coalition's activities in both Syria and Iraq has already reached 967 and could reach 1,000 "within days," according to The Independent newspaper that cites the data of Airwars NGO tracking the number of the aerial campaign's casualties.
