    All US-led coalition airstrikes on civilian targets in Iraq should be investigated in full, the Russian Foreign Ministry's commissioner for human rights said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Moscow has provided concrete evidence of continuing civilian casualties caused by US-led air raids in Syria and Iraq, Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov noted.

    "We continue saying that the coalition's actions in this part violate international law, and that it is necessary to investigate all these cases," Dolgov said at a briefing hosted by the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.
