US strike killed dozens of civilian mourners in Iraq


RT – Initial reports on the attack came on Friday, with AFP citing local officials and medics as saying that 15 women were killed and 50 more injured.

Konashenkov noted that such incidents bear the mark of war crimes. “These deadly attacks on civilian areas, which have all the marks of war crimes, are becoming almost a daily routine for the international coalition.”

The spokesman also noted that civilians and civilian infrastructure are increasingly finding themselves in the crosshairs of the coalition bombardment.  “Too often weddings, funerals, hospitals, police stations, and humanitarian convoys are being hit by the coalition warplanes,”Konashenkov said. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova also weighed in, slamming the coalition’s action.  CONTINUE READING

    One can only think that these repeated incidents are nothing other than highly deliberate, hatefully genocidal attacks against innocent Iraqi civilians.

    After all, the US satellites can see clearly what people are carrying, if they are armed or not, what they are actually doing, and what kind of people they are.

    It would be quite obvious that they were not for example, driving convoys of flat bed trucks with heavy calibre machine guns mounted on the back.

    The locality would be able to be seen, a graveyard for example, and even the size and sex of the individuals being surveyed would be clearly visible, whether they were women and children.

    The US has no excuse whatsoever, these attacks are blatantly deliberate and insanely malicious, and considering they already know Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks on America in 2001, the Americans are exhibiting typical demented Israeli-type hatred against the Iraqis for no good reason at all.
