Hajin News for example reported that as well as a Coalition strike on an ISIS prison in the town that day, the US-led alliance “also targeted a home that houses a displaced Iraqi family, and there is initial news of the martyrdom of a woman in the attack.”
In its December 2020 monthly civilian casualty report, the Coalition assessed this event as ‘non credible’, claiming that “The allegation provided insufficient detail to identify a specific date, time, or location to assess its credibility.”
