WASHINGTON, D.C.: The US military denied Sunday a report that strikes led by Washington had killed at least 52 civilians in northern Syria earlier this week, saying those killed were actually fighters. “US Central Command can confirm that Coalition forces conducted airstrikes in the vicinity of Birmahle, Syria, on April 30, destroying several ISIL fighting positions and striking more than 50 ISIL fighters,” command spokesman Major Curt Kellogg said in a statement, using an acronym by which the Islamic State group is known. “We currently have no indication that any civilians were killed in these strikes.”
