Report: At Least 22,000 Civilians Were Killed by US Airstrikes Since 9/11

A new analysis published by the civilian harm monitoring group, Airwars, estimated that US drones and airstrikes have killed at least 22,000 civilians and as many as 48,000 since the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the US in 2001.

According to The Guardian, the published analysis revealed that the US military has directed almost 100,000 airstrikes since 2001 under the pretext of the so-called “War on Terror.”

The released data comes ahead of the 20th commemoration of September 11, with US president Joe Biden’s promise to end the “forever wars” led by his country, amid the US troops’ withdrawal from Afghanistan.
