The Guardian published a report accusing the UK government of firing on civilians in Iraq in 2016 and 2017.
The British government has said that it fought a “perfect” war against the Islamic State in Iraq, a term I highly object to. The only perfect war is the one that was prevented from happening.
What they mean by “perfect” is that they protected ordinary citizens but the non-profit group Airwars objects to that claim. They say that the U.K. killed civilians in at least six air strikes in the Iraqi city of Mosul. At least 26 deaths were reported, including children.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said that there “is no evidence” of this.
