Description

The Pentagon said two children were likely killed by a US-led coalition air strike in Syria. The statement marks the first near-confirmation of civilian casualties since the Islamic State campaign began last August. According to a statement released on Thursday,a “preponderance of the evidence” from an investigation launched in January, indicated that air strikes conducted between November 5 and 6 against facilities in Harim, near Aleppo. The facilities were being used by al-Qaeda affiliate the Khorasan group. According to Chris Woods, the founder of Airwars.org, last November’s attack may have killed up to four children, including five-year-old Daniya Ali al-Haj Qaddour. Airwars is a non-profit transparency project archiving the international air war against the Islamic State. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/may/21/two-children-killed-us-led-syria-air-strike http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
