29 innocent people were killed or harmed in these bombings.
Last week the military detailed five acts, that took place between April 12 and July 4, 2015. The acts had claimed eight lives and left three other people injured. This week the Pentagon will acknowledge five more incidents, and next week four additional cases may be announced.
Investigating civilian casualties from airstrikes in Syria and Iraq may be difficult or even impossible, as neither the Pentagon's investigators nor independent observers can safely assess the aftermath of American attacks.
