The U.S. military conducted a drone strike in Syria , and there are initial indications of possible civilian casualties, U.S. Central Command announced.
The Friday kinetic strike, near Idlib, targeted a senior al Qaeda “leader and planner,” CENTCOM said. It was conducted using a precision strike method from an MQ-9 aircraft.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We abhor the loss of innocent life and take all possible measures to prevent them. The possibility of a civilian casualty was immediately self-reported to U.S. Central Command. We are initiating a full investigation of the allegations and will release the results when appropriate,” said Capt. Bill Urban, a CENTCOM spokesman.
CENTCOM spokeswoman Lt. Col. Karen Roxberry told the Washington Examiner that an unnamed al Qaeda’s member died in the strike, but that officials could not give the target’s name “to protect intelligence sources and potential follow-on operations.”
“We are in the immediate aftermath of the event and still conducting a thorough assessment. We know of the potential for civilian casualties based on the self-report, but do not want to speculate,” Roxberry added. “We are taking this matter seriously and will ensure that there is a comprehensive investigation.”
