Reports of the incident mention that the airstrike targeted a checkpoint in the eastern part of the town of Mudiya (مودية), for which the coordinates are: 13.928521, 46.083144. A possible checkpoint can be seen on satellite imagery of February 2013 at these coordinates: 13.929017, 46.087330. Due to limited information and satellite imagery available to Airwars, we were unable to verify the location further.
