WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The US-led coalition identified 27 credible civilian casualty reports from Iraq and Syria indicating unintentional death of 114 civilians in strikes against the Daesh terror group (banned in Russia), according to the coalition’s monthly casualty report released on Friday.

“In the month of May…The Coalition completed the assessment of 141 reports, of which 114 were assessed to be non-credible and 27 were assessed to be credible resulting in 119 unintentional civilian deaths,” the report stated.

The total number of casualties since the beginning of strikes in 2014 now amounts to at least 603, according to the report.
