GlobalPost: More than 450 Civilians Killed in US-Led Airstrikes Against the Islamic State

In one incident recounted by a Kurdish peshmerga commander in Kirkuk, Iraq, coalition jets bombed a group of alleged IS fighters 25 minutes after receiving intelligence through a second-hand source.

The peshmerga commander described a two-step process for calling in an airstrike. He receives intelligence on a particular target — or is given it by a trusted source — then the coalition verifies that information from the air. If the intelligence lines up, the jets launch their missiles (American jets carry out roughly 85 percent of all coalition airstrikes against the Islamic State).

In response to questions from GlobalPost about safeguarding civilians, US Army Capt. John J. Moore, a spokesman for the coalition, said in April that there is “a detailed, multi-echelon process between the coalition partners, as well as the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. Without their request and approval, a strike will not occur.”
