Pentagon Indicates US-led Air Strike Likely Killed Two Children In Syria

The Pentagon said two children were likely killed by a US-led coalition air strike in Syria.
The statement marks the first near-confirmation of civilian casualties since the Islamic State campaign began last August.
According to a statement released on Thursday,a “preponderance of the evidence” from an investigation launched in January, indicated that air strikes conducted between November 5 and 6 against facilities in Harim, near Aleppo.
The facilities were being used by al-Qaeda affiliate the Khorasan group.
According to Chris Woods, the founder of Airwars.org, last November’s attack may have killed up to four children, including five-year-old Daniya Ali al-Haj Qaddour.
Airwars is a non-profit transparency project archiving the international air war against the Islamic State.
