Monitoring international airstrikes against so-called Islamic State (Daesh) and other groups in Iraq and Syria. Archiving official reports of the war. Assessing claims of civilian casualties. Promoting accountability of international forces.
Airwars is a journalist-led transparency project working around four strands. We monitor and assess reports of civilian casualties allegedly caused by Coalition and other international airstrikes. We analyse data from the campaigns to help make sense of the war. We archive military claims. And we publish news on our findings.
