US-led coalition delivers air strike on civilian procession in Iraq — MoD Ru

Russian reconnaissance systems have recorded an air strike of the US-led coalition on a funeral procession in the settlement of Daquq, some 30 kilometers south of the Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

 In the air strike, dozens of civilians were killed, with women and children among them, Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, General Igor Konashenkov said on Saturday.

"On October 21, Russian reconnaissance systems registered an air strike delivered by a pair of warplanes on the populated locality of Daquq, some 30 kilometers south of Kirkuk, where there are no ISIS militants (Islamic State, the terrorist group outlawed in Russia - eds. TASS)," Konashenkov said.

 "According to eyewitnesses, the coalition’s aviation mistook a funeral procession for a group of militants. Dozens of Iraqi civilians died, including women and children.". [tass.com]
