The U.S.-led coalition is now reportedly killing more civilians in Syria than ISIS, Russia or even the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. That’s according to the journalistic monitoring group Airwars, which based its findings on data from the Syrian Network for Human Rights. This data says that U.S.-led coalition forces reportedly killed at least 273 civilians last month—which is slightly more than the number of civilians reportedly killed by ISIS. Overall, the data says nearly 1,000 civilians were killed in Syria last month alone.
