(Worthy News) - A significant number of civilians in Syria were killed by Russian and U.S.-led coalition air strikes last year, according to a new report from United Nations war crimes investigators.

Their latest report, which covers the six months that ended Jan. 15, states that “victims of the Syrian conflict have suffered greatly as violence countrywide re-escalated to new heights.”

The U.N. investigators called on Russia and the U.S. to probe their actions, which they claim violated international law. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
