The Pentagon hides the number of civilians who died due to US military operations

This is stated in the report of the Pentagon.

“All the operations of the Ministry of Defense in 2019 were carried out in accordance with the requirements of the law on war, including the law on the protection of civilians,” it says.

They wrote in the document that they applied the principles of “proportionality” and “took risks into account” during the planning of operations. But, as we see, it is not very effective.

In addition, human rights activists believe that the data is greatly underestimated. According to the monitoring organization Airwars, only in the first half of 2019 in Iraq and Syria as a result of American operations, 400 to 1 thousand civilians died.
