US-led 2017 blitz on Syria's Raqa killed 1,600 civilians: report

Amnesty International and the Airwars monitoring group on Thursday reported that Intensive US-led coalition bombardment on the Syrian city of Raqa has killed more than 1,600 civilians over four months in 2017. 

The agencies said that the coalition has admitted to around 10 per cent of those deaths.

The findings were compiled after months of field research and extensive data analysis, including via a project that saw 3,000 digital activists scan satellite imagery online. The agencies urged top coalition members to show more transparency and accountability. 

The coalition responded by saying it investigated reports submitted to it by various sources, including Amnesty, and complied with international humanitarian law.

In mid-2017, Raqa had been the de facto Syria capital of the Islamic State group's cross-border caliphate for three years and the US-led coalition launched a military campaign to crush the jihadists in their main remaining hub.
