ATLANTA — According to an article on CNN.com a month of airstrikes in Syria by the U.S.-led coalition — many targeting ISIS positions around Kobani — has killed 553 people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
A large majority of those killed were ISIS militants, including foreigners, the group said. However, at least 32 civilians were also among those killed between the start of the airstrikes on September 23 and October 22.
Included among the civilians were six children and five women, the group said in a statement Wednesday.
In total, 464 ISIS militants were killed, the Observatory said. The airstrikes also claimed the lives of 57 fighters from al Nusra Front, a rival Islamist group fighting in Syria.
The figures do not include any casualties in neighboring Iraq, where the coalition has also been targeting ISIS forces.
