US Airstrike on Refugee Camp in Deir Ezzor Leaves 100 Children Dead

By Ollie Richardson

American “precision” weapons launched on September 14th, 2017, hit their target in the Deir Ezzor province of Syria. Only, seemingly their target wasn’t a terrorist hideout, or a jihadist weapons cache, but a refugee camp in Jadeed Ekedat. The result? More than 120 people killed, 100 of which are were children.

The video was uploaded by the ISIS “Amaq” news agency (it’s unlikely to be fake considering all the publicly proof that exists of US war crimes all around the Middle East), and, to give America the benefit of the doubt, and because we as external observers have no information from the ground ourselves, maybe the airstrike did kill some militants in the area. But how can such “collateral damage” – as the Pentagon likes to call it – be justified when the means exist to launch missiles with pinpoint (within a few metres) accuracy? Of course, this isn’t the first time that the US has bombed civilian targets with a horrific outcome, and it is extremely likely that this won’t be the last. As a reminder – the US’ presence in Syria is absolutely 100% illegal.

With the Internet being saturated with US/EU propaganda about Russia “bombing the last hospital in Aleppo”, or Assad “using Sarin gas” on a handful of “victims”, the US quietly massacres more civilians in order to fulfil Lockheed Martin/Raytheon/Boeing contracts. The video below probably won’t be shown on televisions in the West, but instead we will see endless footage of “Hurricane Irma” or some other deliberately-inflated incident. This is not to mention the now well-known fact that the US contributed to the creation of ISIS by invading Iraq in 2003 and creating illegal torture camps like Bucca and David, where today’s leader of al-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) and ISIS (formerly al-Qaeda in Iraq) “graduated” from with honours.
