Local sources reported that twenty civilians, including one woman, were killed and dozens were injured in heavy airstrikes on Shifa neighbourhood in West Mosul.
A journalist had informed Yaqein that: “the bombing caused the deaths of more than twenty civilians [who were] burned in their homes, mostly women and children” and that “the shelling caused the injury of dozens of civilians in varying degrees.” Yaqein blamed the Joint Forces.
Al Jazeera said that witnesses had reported that the houses were used as storerooms by ISIL, and spoke of airstrikes and artillery shelling. The sources had not specified the identity of the aircraft to Al Jazeera.
In a later post, Sawlf Ateka (local Facebook group) posted two photos, of a couple reportedly killed in raids on their house.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
