A single top secret American strike cell killed farmers, children and villagers in Syria

A single top secret American strike cell launched tens of thousands of bombs and missiles  causing the death of a lot of civilians in Syria, according to an article published by the New York Times. 
 
According to multiple current and former military and intelligence officials, the unit was called Talon Anvil, and it worked in three shifts around the clock between 2014 and 2019, pinpointing targets for the United States’ formidable air power to hit: convoys, car bombs, command centers and squads of enemy fighters. 
 
But people who worked with the strike cell say in the rush to destroy enemies, it circumvented rules imposed to protect noncombatants, and alarmed its partners in the military and the C.I.A. by killing people who had no role in the conflict: farmers trying to harvest, children in the street, families fleeing fighting, and villagers sheltering in buildings.
