US-COALITION WARPLANES BOMB SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES

ARMED & DANGEROUS New ammo improves pilot safety, reduces collateral damage

Airstrikes by the US-led coalition killed dozens of Syrian government-aligned forces in a botched September attack due to “human error”.

The US-led airstrike near Deir Ezzor in Syria’s east on September 18 was supposed to target ISIS terrorists, but instead the bombs landed on Syrian forces. The attacks by US, British, Danish and Australian warplanes killed more than 83 people. The investigation, carried out by the US-led coalition, blamed “unintentional human error” for the fatal bombings, but the mission was conducted in full compliance with the rules of engagement and the laws of armed conflict.
