According to the report, a mosque in that was full of worshipers was bombed and destroyed in an airstrike just last month.

“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.”

Contrary to the statement by the Central Command spokesman, the has said that no such evidence to support claims have been found.

“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.
