Pentagon to review deadly 2019 US bombings in Syria

United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered a review into US military bombings in Syria in March 2019 that the New York Times recently reported killed dozens of civilians during the battle for the final stronghold of ISIL (ISIS).

Urban’s statement came a day after the New York Times, citing anonymous sources and classified documents, published a report that accused the US military of concealing the bombings.

The newspaper reported that the bombing struck a “crowd of women and children”, killing 64 people.
