WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — According to the statement, between August 2014 and February 2017, the coalition conducted a total of 18,600 airstrikes, with the total number of possible civilian deaths reaching 396 people.
"To date, based on data between August 2014 and February 2017, the Coalition conducted a total of 18,645 strikes that included 42,089 separate engagements. During this period, the total number of reports of possible civilian casualties was 396," the statement read.
In March, Amnesty International accused the coalition of "flagrant violation of international humanitarian law" as the coalition failed to take precautions to prevent high death toll among civilians in Iraqi Mosul.
The US-led coalition of 68 nations started to carry out airstrikes against Daesh in Syria and Iraq in 2014, with the strikes in Syria not being authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the UN Security Council.
