The recent London terrorist attack, which killed 4 people, is plastered all over the mainstream media, even with special articles already on “who were the victims.” So why are the U.S. terrorist attacks on Syrian barely mentioned?
It is apparently not enough that Syrian citizens are being attacked and terrorized by ISIS, they also have to fear terrorist attacks from the U.S. and its allies.
US forces were conducting an airdrop of Kurdish fighters around the Syrian town of al-Mansour, near the ISIS capital city of Raqqa, and carrying out heavy airstrikes to cover the drop.
One airstrike targeted a school in the town which was being used to house civilians from the surrounding area displaced by the fighting. At least 33 civilians were killed, reported CBS.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 33 dead had been recovered from the rubble so far, and that only two survivors had been recovered yet. Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, another NGO, reported the school sheltered around 50 displaced families, which might suggest the toll will continue to rise, according to BBC.
As expected, the Pentagon is evasive about the terrorist attack and civilian casualties, confirming that they carried out multiple airstrikes in the immediate vicinity of the incident, but claiming there is “no evidence” that they hit a school in the course of that.
All signs point to the U.S. being behind this attack, which makes this the second US strike causing large civilian casualties in Syria in the past week, with the previous attack further west in the village of al-Jineh destroying part of a mosque and killing at least 49 civilians, and according to some reports as many as 75.
If the U.S. is bombing Syrian civilians, even blowing up schools and houses of prayer, then who are they helping in the war against ISIS?
