Le vittime civili provocate dagli attacchi aerei della coalizione a guida Usa sulla parte occidentale di Mosul, due settimane fa, non erano intenzionali: così il presidente iracheno Fuad Masum in un’intervista a Sputnik. “C’è il coordinamento tra la coalizione degli Stati Uniti e le forze di sicurezza irachene, ma a volte ci sono episodi di cattivo funzionamento” ha rilevato Masum.

Civilian casualties in US-led coalition airstrikes on western Mosul two weeks ago were not intentional, Iraqi President Fuad Masum told Sputnik. “This is not a deliberate intent, strikes against residents and the destruction of the area,” Masum said in an interview. “But sometimes there are unintended mistakes.” The Pentagon confirmed late last week that an initial investigation of a March 17 airstrike on an apartment bloc in Mosul, believed to have killed more than 200 civilians, found it was conducted by the US-led coalition. “There is coordination between the US coalition and the Iraqi security forces, but sometimes it malfunctions,” Masum said in an interview.
