Pentagon acknowledges mistaken drone strike

The United States military admitted yesterday that it mistakenly killed a Syrian civilian in a 2023 drone strike that was meant to target a senior Al Qaeda leader.

The U.S. Central Command said it cannot share more information, since it is classified. However, the investigation which concluded last November, revealed that while the military abided by the proper laws and U.S. policies in an armed conflict, it could’ve improved in several areas.

Command added, “We are committed to learning from this incident and improving our targeting processes to mitigate potential civilian harm.”
