The Americans don’t seem to be able to help themselves – but it’s all the Russians’ fault – lol.

"There are new cases of [US-led] coalition's airstrikes on civilian targets. On October 24, US Air Force's tactical aircraft launched missile and bomb strikes on a school building in the village of Tall Kayf located 14 kilometers north of Mosul at 3:35. As a result of the strike, there are dead and wounded," Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy, chief of the Russian General Staff Main Operational Directorate, said.

"The activity of the coalition's strikes in this [residential] area has been further intensified, including using B-52 strategic bombers," Rudskoy dded. 

 "The number of civilian casualties will only increase," Rudskoy noted. Oo October 25, the Russian General Staff said that more than 60 civilians had been killed and 200 wounded in coalition airstrikes on Mosul residential districts during the last three days. 

The Russian Defense Ministry said Saturday that the US-led coalition launched strikes on a funeral procession in the Iraqi town of Daquq near the city of Kirkuk, killing dozens of civilians. 

On October 17, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of a military operation to recapture Mosul from Daesh with the help of airstrikes by the US-led coalition. 

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said that targeting mistakes by the member countries of the international coalition occur too often. 

"Weddings, funerals, hospitals, police departments, humanitarian convoys and even Syrian troops, fighting against Daesh terrorists near Deir ez-Zor, become targets for coalition airstrikes," Konashenkov stressed.
