The United States has dropped over 23,000 bombs on six Muslim-majority countries in 2015, according to new statistics, an illustration of how much  damage Washington inflicts on the Muslim world.

The Council of Foreign Relations (CRF), a New York-based think tank, has estimated that 23,144 bombs were dropped last year by the US on Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.

About 77 percent of the US airstrikes purportedly targeted the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group in Iraq and Syria, CRF said, citing several sources, including US Airpower Statistics and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Details on the extent of destruction and the civilian deaths caused by American weapons have not been provided.
