Local sources claimed Coalition planes struck a home in the Al-Bab Al-Gharbi neighbourhood of Hit in western Anbar, which resulted in the injuring of a family. A later report said two women died in the attack on Ummal neighbourhood.
In its July 2017 monthly report, the Coalition classed the event as non-credible on grounds of lack of available information: “April 10, 2016, near Hit, Iraq, via Airwars report: The report contained insufficient information of the time, location and details to assess its credibility.”
Given that specific neighbourhoods were identified in reports, Airwars is seeking additional clarification from the Coalition.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
