Drone Strikes: RAF admit to ‘unintentionally’ killing civilian

A CIVILIAN was “unintentionally” killed by an RAF drone strike … in eastern Syria, the government confirmed yesterday.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson confirmed the individual died after crossing into the strike area on a motorbike moments before the blast on March 26. …

Stop the War‘s Chris Nineham said: “This is proof that the Ministry of Defence’s absurd claims [of never killing any civilians] have been misleading from the very start.

The anti-war movement has always argued that it inevitably leads to civilian deaths. This proves we are right and many more will be killed by such drone programmes.

“The vast majority of people in Britain think that this type of intervention has to stop.”

This one precious civilian life lost is just the tip of the iceberg.

The following is the third part of a three-part interview with Professor Piers Robinson, an academic at the University of Sheffield and a member of the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media. Parts one and two appeared on May 24 and May 25.
