Date and approximate time: January 3, 2017, around noon
Casualties: 15 civilians, including women and children.
Comments: Another targeted strike that seems to have been either a misfire or the result of bad intelligence/surveillance. Witnesses said kids were playing on the streets outside, there were women on the rooftops. Not clear what the target would have been. I believe this was two houses set close together.”
