The Russian Military General Staff claimed that a Coalition airstrike on a girls’ school south of Mosul killed a number of civilians.
According to Sputnik News, The Russian General Staff said that more than 60 civilians were killed and 200 others were injured during air strikes launched by the international coalition led by the United States on the neighbourhoods of Mosul and surrounding areas during a three day period. The Commission emphasised that Russia is closely monitoring the situation in Mosul, referring to the lack of notable successes in the liberation of the Iraqi city from the grip of the “Daesh” terrorist operation.
There are no known additional reports for this alleged event.
The chief Coalition spokesman responded by saying that Russia’s allegations “smells like a fire hose of falsehood.”
Given reported British actions in the area that day, Airwars flagged the incident to the UK’s MoD which said ” we can confirm that there was no UK involvement” in the event.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
