Nine civilians were killed in alleged coalition strikes in eastern Mosul, according to local reports.
Orient News cited an Iraqi security source and reported the killing of nine civilians in an air strike that hit two houses in the east of Mosul, and wrote that it was likely carried out by the Coalition.
Al Manar and News of Iraq also cited the same casualty figures, though Al Manar seemed to use the same source as Orient News. Nineveh MC did not assign blame and only referred to indiscriminate bombing.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
