Up to seven civilians were reported killed and 47 injured after the Coalition allegedly carried out dawn airstrikes on Mosul.
According to Yaqein, areas targeted included Ghazlani and Nabi Sheet. Citing a local source it said locals were quick to evacuate the injured to nearby hospitals and the dead bodies to the morgue. Mosul Eye gave the same casualty figures.
According to NRN News, the major raid targeted multiple sites across the city: International coalition aircraft bombed a headquarters of Daesh in the Nabi Sheet area in eastern Mosul, and bombed a house belonging to members of the organization in the Hadba neighbourhood to the north of Mosul. They also struck the traffic circle Directorate at the Faisaliah in the west of the city. Other strikes were reported in Al Muthanna, in the Baath and Arab neighbourhoods, and near the city’s Great Mosque. As well as killing at least 30 Daesh fighters, NRN said seven civilians “including women and children died.
An eyewitness in a video published by NRN (probably originating with Al A’Amaq) noted: When you see this bombing no one can blame Islamic State when they kill a spy with a bullet to his head. Innocent family members were killed by this bombing.
In their May 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.
