Four members of the al-Jumaili family were killed in an alleged Coalition strike at Hit, according to reports.
Mr al-Jumaili was described as a refrigerator repairman, whose home in the city’s April 7th neighbourhood was hit.
The dead have been named by one of the sources.
In their August 2020 civilian casualty report, the US-led Coalition assessed reports that they were responsible for civilian harm in this strike as “non-credible”, stating that after a review of all available records it was determined that, more likely than not, civilian casualties did not occur as a result of a Coalition action.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
