Witnesses have said that a combat helicopter of the US-led coalition fired on a car transporting wounded people in the western Iraqi province of Anbar, claiming the lives of several police officers and civilians.
A video showing eyewitnesses speaking about the coalition’s “friendly fire” in western Iraq’s Anbar province which killed at least eight people has emerged.
The death toll included police and civilians who were killed when the coalition’s combat helicopter targeted a car ferrying wounded people, among them a woman, for medical assistance.
In the video, one of the eyewitnesses is seen saying that “we demand that Americans leave the country [Iraq] because of a disregard for people’s lives.”
