MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Washington promises to investigate all civilian deaths in Syria and Iraq during the international coalition's operation, Moscow is waiting for the results of this investigation, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, Konstantin Dolgov said on Friday.
"The US Department of State promises to investigate, together with the Pentagon, every civilian death in Syria and Iraq under the bombs of the US-led coalition," the diplomat tweeted. "If they keep this promise, they will have plenty of work to do. Let’s look at the results and see whether someone will be punished."
The US-led international anti-terrorism coalition to fight the Islamic State (group, outlawed in Russia) was formed in 2014.
Currently, the coalition is taking part in the military operation to liberate Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, from Islamic State militants. It has been under IS control for more than two years. The coalition also launched an anti-terrorism operation in Syria in 2014.
