U.S.-led airstrikes targeting ISIS in Iraq and Syria likely have killed hundreds of civilians, a report by an independent monitoring group said Monday.The report by Airwars, a project aimed at tracking the airstrikes targeting the extremists, said it believed 57 specific strikes killed at least 459 civilians and caused 48 suspected "friendly fire" deaths.The U.S. only has acknowledged killing two civilians in its strikes: Two children who were likely slain during an American airstrike targeting Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria last year.That strike is one of at least four ongoing U.S. military investigations into allegations of civilian casualties resulting from the airstrikes.
