Multiple local sources said that more than 13 members from one family were “scattered under the rubble” of their houses in Shifa neighborhood, in the centre/ west of Mosul. Unidentified aircraft had allegedly hit the houses.
Sawlf Ateka, a local Facebook group, said that Abdullah al-Mazouri had died in the raids (see photo below). In a later post, the page reported that he used to be an engineer, and that in total 13 people had lost their lives in the airstrikes. The house was located in Albbsi Street in Shifa neighbourhood, near the Bursa (stock market) area. The page asked to save them. It is unclear how many of the civilians under the rubble died, though it weas implied that all had died.
A tweet by @hhcc7 suggested that most of the victims were women and children.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
