Nine civilians were killed and over 115 claimed wounded, according to ISIL-linked sources.
ISIL-controlled al A’amaq reported that more than 9 civilians died, including four children and a woman, and “about 115 wounded as a result of US airstrikes” in Mosul.
A distressing video posted by the ISIL-controlled outlet initially shows several destroyed buildings in what appeared to be a residential neighbourhood. Later footage depicts wounded people in the hospital, including injured and stunned boys and girls, as well as what appears to be one dead girl.
The only other reports referenced al A’amaq.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
