The United States continued to trample on human rights in other countries, causing tremendous civilian casualties, according to a report on U.S. human rights released Thursday.
The United States had repeatedly organized coalition forces to launch air strikes against military forces in Iraq and Syria since Aug. 8, 2014, and it launched 3,965 air strikes in Iraq and 2,823 in Syria as of Dec. 6, 2015, causing an estimated number of civilian deaths between 1,695 and 2,239, says the report titled "Human Rights Record of the United States in 2015" published by China's State Council Information Office.
On Oct. 3, 2015, a hospital run by aid group "Doctors Without Borders" in the city of Kunduz in Afghanistan was under a bombing that continued for half an hour, leaving 42 people killed, with some bodies charred beyond recognition, says the report.
During Operation Haymaker, a campaign in northeastern Afghanistan which ran between January 2012 and February 2013, some 219 people were killed by drones but just 35 were the intended targets, according to the report.
It also cites a report by the U.S. Senate on the study of the Central Intelligence Agency's detention and interrogation program, saying the CIA used brutal interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, long-term solitary confinement, slamming prisoners' heads into walls, lashing and death threat.
According to the report, the U.S. government continued to monitor leaders from other countries in the name of "national security purpose" in 2015. It cites a report by the Independent on June 24, 2015, saying the United States had bugged the phones of three French presidents and many other senior French officials.
