The US military has admitted responsibility for unintentionally killing 23 civilians in foreign war zones in 2020, far below figures compiled by non-governmental agencies. But it also acknowledged more civilian deaths from previous years. Al Jazeera reports that most of the civilian casualties were in Afghanistan, where the Pentagon said it was responsible for 20 deaths, with one civilian killed in Somalia in February and another in Iraq in March. The document released to the public does not specify when or where the 23rd victim was killed. The NGO Airwars, which lists civilian victims of air attacks, said though that their most conservative estimates show that 102 civilians were killed in US operations around the world – five times higher than the official Pentagon figures.
