Several local sources claimed 10 civilians were killed and 20 injured in alleged Coalition strikes on Mosul.
According to anti-government site Yaqen, “the international airline alliance this morning carried out several air strikes” in central Mosul which in turn killed 10 civilians and ‘substantially damaged’ a number of homes.
Meanwhile, the pro-government site Al Rassid made no mention of civilian casualties, noting only that up to 25 fighters with Daesh were killed when ‘gatherings and strongholds’ of the terror group were struck.
In their February 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 no Coalition actions were conducted in the geographical area at that time.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
