U.S airstrike on a Syrian mosque killed at least 50 worshipers: Human Rights Watch report
While the United States is denying the report, saying that the airstrike was done on a hall where Al Qaeda terrorists were holding a meeting, many Syrians are vouching to the report that the airstrike did hit a mosque located in western Aleppo on March 16. The airstrike however killed at least 40 worshipers and injured dozens other.
“We did not target any mosques,” U.S. Central Command spokesman Col. John J. Thomas said the day after the bombing. “What we did target was destroyed. There is a mosque within 50 feet of that building that is still standing.”
“The U.S. authorities need to figure out what went wrong, start doing their homework before they launch attacks, and make sure it doesn’t happen again.” Ole Solvang, deputy emergencies director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement.
