Up to 15 civilians including women and children were allegedly killed in a reported coalition airstrike at Mosul, which was also said to have injured seven people.
The National Iraq News Agency (NINA), citing what it described as a local source, reported that “the international coalition aircraft bombed houses belonging to unarmed civilians believed to be strongholds of the organization Daash in Qayyarah and Hamam al-Alil and Shura south of Mosul.”
“The source added that the outcome of the bombing had resulted in 15 martyrs, including women and children, and the elderly, as well as the wounding of seven other civilians who were seriously injured.”
In its monthly civilian casualty report for October 2019 – published on December 5th of that year – the Coalition assessed the event as ‘non credible’, noting that “July 9, 2015, in Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. The allegation provided insufficient detail to identify a specific date, time, or location to search for corroborating Coalition action. 2784/CI082 38SLF294240”.
Coalition officials also provided Airwars with a geolocation to within 100 metres of the area reviewed.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
