Multiple civilians were reported killed and injured in alleged Coalition airstrikes on the July 17th district of Mosul.

According to Mosul Eye, the strikes on a Wednesday night took place at prayer time near a mosque in the Almoghait area – particularly busy during Ramadan. The attack “left several civilians killed and wounded as well as elements of Daesh.” Iraqi Revolution said “dozens of civilians” were killed and injured, publishing a graphic photo of what it said was the attack.
