The US authorities admitted that at least 80 civilians were killed in the 2019 bombing of the Syrian city of Bagusa, writes the New York Times.
According to the publication, on March 18, 2019, the American F-15E attack aircraft dropped two bombs weighing 500 pounds and 2 thousand pounds on a crowd consisting mainly of women and children.
US Central Command spokesman Bill Urban said there was an internal investigation into the airstrike.
According to him, the strike was justified, since 16 militants who were in the crowd were destroyed.
Earlier, the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria reported that two Syrian soldiers were killed, another was injured as a result of an attack by militants in Idlib.
It is noted that terrorist snipers attacked the positions of government forces near the settlements of Kavkaba and Melladzha, and a mortar shelling of the settlement of Bala was also fired.
