“We started to discover how many civilians had perished, but also the reverberating civilian harm effects of this strike. For us, at IRW, it was really important because this was just one of the 35.000 missions and a 100.000 bombs thrown, so it was a case of remote warfare and the impact that it has on civilians.”
