Pentagon Admits US Airstrike On Hospital “May Have Killed Civilians”

Submitted by Jason Ditz via,
Adding to concerns about the civilian toll of the US air war against ISIS targets, the Pentagon yesterday admitted that they carried out an airstrike against the parking lot of a Mosul hospital, conceding that they ‘may have killed civilians’ in the attack.
The Pentagon’s Combined Joint Strike Force said in a statement that they were after a van they suspected of carrying ISIS fighters, and they blew it up in the parking lot of what ‘was later determined to be a hospital.’ The US has previously insisted all hospital sites in Mosul were well known and that they were taking extreme care not to hit civilians.
