    Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said that the motives behind attempts of the US-led coalition to conceal war crimes committed by the Daesh terrorists in Iraqi Mosul are unclear.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The motives behind attempts of the US-led coalition to conceal war crimes committed by the Daesh terrorists in Iraqi Mosul are unclear, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Sunday in a statement.

    "What motives is the US command driven by when they hide the war crimes of terrorists from the international community behind the veil of secrecy?…Why does the US-led international coalition, with this information, using their "smart bombs" still carry out airstrikes on buildings with civilians, knowingly condemning them to a terrible death?" Konashenkov said.

    The Pentagon’s absurd statements justifying mass civilian casualties of US bombing in Iraq reveal the real level of operations’ planning, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement on Sunday.

    “The Pentagon’s absurd statements justifying mass civilian casualties of US bombing in Iraq tell more words about the real level of planning operations and alleged superiority of the US ‘smart bombs,’” he said.
