WASHINGTON - At least 1,114 civilians have been confirmed dead in Syria and Iraq as a result of US-led coalition’s campaign to defeat the Islamic State (IS, outlawed in Russia) terrorist group, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve said in a monthly casualty report on Thursday.

“Based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 1114 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve,” the report said. “A total of 219 reports are still open.”

The latest figure includes all civilian casualties from the start of the campaign in August 2014 through August 2018, a period during which the coalition conducted a total of 30,008 strikes, the report said.

In August 2018, coalition strikes killed at least 53 civilians, based on an analysis of eight reports US officials considered credible. The coalition determined that 50 other civilian casualty reports were not credible, the report said.

The US-led coalition of more than 70 members is conducting military operations against the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria and Iraq. The coalition’s activities in Iraq are conducted in cooperation with Iraqi officials, but those in Syria are not authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the United Nations Security Council.
