ARAB NEWS: LONDON: The Pentagon reported that Lloyd Austin III, US Defense Secretary, has asked the top military commander for the Middle East, to give details about a 2019 attack that left dozens of children and women dead in Syria.

After allegations made by the New York Times about top civilian officers and civil officials trying to hide the consequence of the strike’s aftermath, Austin asked for the briefing. NYT exposed the 2019 strike in Baghuz over the weekend. This was Daesh’s last standoff before the end its so-called caliphate. A drone controller saw a plane drop a bomb on 50 children and women. However, the military now admits that 80 people died, including many children and women. “Who dropped that?” A confused analyst wrote on a secure chat system used by drone monitors. Two people who looked at the chat log remembered the response. According to the NYT, another person replied: “We just dropped on 50 children .” women.” Two more large bombs were also dropped on the crowd. This destroyed anyone who survived the initial blast. Although it is the most serious civilian casualty incident in the international coalition’s war on Daesh, it was not publicly acknowledged by military personnel. Although legal officers reported the incident immediately to the chain of command for investigation, the bombing never received an in-depth investigation. The Pentagon stated that Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. of US Central Command, which oversaw the air conflict in Syria, will “brief Austin” more precisely on the particular airstrike and its handling. Kirby declined to comment in a press conference on the strike. He said that he was not going to retaliate for a strike in March of 2019,”, but instead assert and defended US procedures to reduce harm to civilians. Kirby stated that “No military anywhere in the world works so hard to avoid civilian liability.” But that doesn’t mean we always do it right. We don’t. We do our best to prevent civilian harm. We want to look at ourselves.” After the NYT had sent its findings to US Central Command last week, the NYT acknowledged the attack and admitted that it had killed 80 persons. Human rights expressed their outrage Monday at the military’s handling and strike, and asked Congress to launch an independent investigation.
