"Amnesty: 1 600 civilians died in U.S.-led attack."
"More than 1,600 civilians were killed in the US-led alliance's offensive to drive the member IS from the syrian city of al-Raqqa in 2017, according to Amnesty International. It is ten times more deaths than what the alliance itself has admitted."
"Amnesty international, together with the Airwars, which is an independent organization that documents the air raids and artillery attacks in Iraq and Syria, spent 18 months to examine the civilian deaths in the city."
"Several of the cases they have investigated battles, probably against international law and the families of the victims should be compensated by alliance members, they say."
"IS conquered al-Raqqa in 2014, and the city was described as the crown jewel of the terrorsektens självutropade caliphate. In October 2017, driven ICE out of the city – which, however, was laid in ruins."
