Puerto Rico Tribune: Pentagon doesn’t hold anyone accountable for 2019 Syria strike that killed four civilians following review

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: CNN

(CNN)Despite a renewed commitment on civilian casualties, the Pentagon has decided to hold no one accountable for a 2019 strike in Baghouz, Syria, that killed four civilians and wounded 15.

Following the conclusion of a four-star review of the incident during the last days of the US fight against the final ISIS stronghold in March 2019, the Pentagon said that the airstrike did not violate the laws of warfare or the rules of engagement.
Neither the ground forces commander nor anyone involved in carrying out the airstrike “acted inappropriately or acted with malicious intent” or “deliberately wanted to and sought out to kill civilians,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Tuesday.
Kirby emphasized what he called transparency in the US investigation and review of the strike, and he said the Pentagon would use that information to try to prevent civilian harm in the future. “We’re admitting that, yes, we killed some innocent civilians, women and children, in 2019 in Baghouz, Syria. It’s all out there for you to see. We’re admitting that we made those mistakes. That our operations ended up in the killing of innocent people.”
The review found there were problems that led to numerous delays in reporting the possibility of civilian casualties within the military, including missed deadlines and incomplete information that prevented complete assessments. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was “disappointed” to learn about these problems, Kirby said.

Austin has placed a renewed emphasis on preventing civilian casualties, calling for the development of a Civilian Harm Mitigation and Response Action Plan in late-January. But despite the increased focus, the Pentagon has notpunished any of its commanders for civilian casualties. In December, the Pentagon said it would not hold anyone accountable for a drone strike in late-August that killed 10 civilians, including seven children. A review of the strike concluded it was a “tragic mistake” that was the result of “execution errors.”
Austin ordered a review of the Baghouz strike in late-November, putting General Michael Garrett, the four-star commander of US Army Force Command, in charge.
On March 18, 2019, the US-allied Syrian Democratic Forces called for air support when they came under attack from ISIS forces, according to a statement from Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for US Central Command. US and coalition forces surrounded the last ISIS holdout in Baghouz, Syria, but in the final days of fighting, ISIS launched its own counterattack.
A nearby F-15 fighter jet dropped three 500-pound precision-guided bombs to assist the SDF. Several hours after the strikes, Urban said the UAV operator reported possible civilians in the area when the bombs were dropped.
A military investigation initiated in the aftermath of the Syria strikes found they were “legitimate self-defense strikes” in support of the SDF that killed “at least” 16 ISIS fighters, Urban said. The strikes also killed “at least” four civilians and wounded eight others, but the military could not “conclusively characterize the status” of more than 60 others killed in the strikes, leaving open the possibility of a much higher civilian death toll.
On Tuesday, Kirby said that a review of the strike found that a total of 73 people had been killed, of which 52 were enemy fighters. All but one of those was an adult male, and one fighter was a child. Two enemy combatants were wounded in action. Four civilians were killed in the strike, including one woman and three children. Another 15 civilian were wounded, including 11 women and four children.
“There was no need to hold somebody personally accountable for what happened that day,” Kirby said. “Given the information [the ground forces commander] had at the time, he made the best decisions he could in the fog of war, in the midst of combat, against a very determined enemy in a concentrated part of territory in Syria who were fighting very, very aggressively against our SDF counterparts.”
“You make the best decisions you can in war. Do you get it right every time? No. And that’s regrettable for all of us.”
Austindirected the military to take a number of steps to ensure more timely and thorough assessments of potential civilian casualty incidents. He ordered that all the deadlines to report and review these incidents would be completed in an on time and thorough fashion, instructing leaders across DoD to make sure they are complete.

Puerto Rico Tribune: Cámara votará mañana para presentar medida para que Caridad Pierluisi radique informes de ética

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: Radio Isla TV

El representante popular, Orlando Aponte, dijo en RADIO ISLA que  mañana se votará en la Cámara de Representantes , para que la hermana del gobernador , Pedro Pierluisi, Caridad Pierluis radique informes de ética.

“En el día de mañana vamos a estar realizando una sesión pública de consideración final, para atender esa medida”, afirmó el representante.

Asimismo, Aponte expresó que espera que dicha medida cuente con los votos suficientes.

“Esa medida busca que las personas que sean dentro de un cuarto grado o básicamente parientes del gobernador y que estén asignados a su oficina, tengan que rendir estos informes, independientemente de que aleguen que lo están haciendo de forma gratuita o voluntaria. En ese sentido espero que en el día de mañana se apruebe y yo no veo ninguna dificultad para que cuente con los votos suficientes de todas las delegaciones, excepto de la del PNP, que estoy seguro que le va votar en contra. No quieren que haya claridad en la oficina del gobernador y no quieren que se rindan informes de ética”, concluyó.
