10 to 40 civilians were reported killed, and 13 to 36 injured following alleged Coalition airstrikes in west Mosul.
Mosul Eye offered a detailed description of affected neighbourhoods, claiming that airstrikes had hit: “– A home in the Muhammadiyah area near the kindergarten which also damaged neighbours’ houses around it and led to the fall of martyrs and wounded
– A house in the Municipalities district
– A house in the Engineers neighbourhood which was sheltering foreigners
– Inside a [further] house in the Engineers neighbourhood
– A residence in the Agricultural district
NRN News reported that Coalition planes bombed a house used by Daesh, killing four members of the organisation, 12 civilians and wounding five others.
They said the aircraft “also bombed the headquarters of the organisation behind the spring Daash hospital“, killing 20 members of Daesh, 15 civilians and wounding eight others.
NRN’s correspondent went on to say that Colation aircraft also targeted another house used by Daesh “behind a restaurant in the neighbourhood of engineers“, killing “seven members of the organisation, including foreigners, in addition to injuring six others“.
The report concluded by saying that there was “serious damage to neighbouring houses, leading to the fall of more than 13 civilians, including women and children.“
In the second of their September 2020 civilian casualty reports, 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.
