US, UK ‘Normalised’ Targeted Drone Killings in Blow to Human Rights, Study Shows

from Sputnik News:

The study was conducted before the assassination of Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Qasem Soleimani who died in a US drone strike on the Baghdad International Airport on 3 January, ordered by President Donald Trump.

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) strikes by the US and the UK for targeted killings “has become normalised and accepted, eroding human rights norms”, according to a study conducted by the British NGO Drone Wars.
