January 2017

January 1st 2017: طريق سرمدا باب الهوا  Road between Sarmada and Bab Al-Hawa, Idlib governorate, Syria
Summary: Targeted air or drone strikes – most likely unilateral US actions – reportedly killed two high ranking militants along with a number of fighters. However sources also claimed there were civilian casualties.
There were two reported evening attacks. In the first, a car was destroyed on the Sarmada-Bab al Hawa road, killing four people inside. Altihad reported that the attack also “wounded people who were present.” And Orient News referenced “the martyrdom of a number of civilians.”
In the second strike “another drone targeted another car near Sarmada roundabout and killed more of the Al Nusra Front, and people were scared and evacuated their cars immediately” according to Altihad. Three fighters reportedly died.
According to the Syrian Observatory, “At least two leaders of the Al-Nusra Front were killed and three of Fatah Al-Sham [Al-Nusra Front’s previous name] were killed on the road between Sarmada and Bab Al-Hawa. One was among the top four leaders of the Islamic Turkistani Jihadi party, and is one of the 10 most jihadists in Syria. A leader of Al-Qaeda was also in the same car between Sarmada and Bab Al-Hawa. It’s not known whether the warplanes belongs to the Coalition or Russia.” Ahlul Bayt named the two leaders as Abu Omar al-Turkistani and Khatab al-Qahtani.

January 2nd, 2017: الهرمات Haramat neighbourhood of Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Four women and two or more children were killed and eight other civilians injured by Coalition strikes, according to local reports.
Iraqi Spring Media Center reported that the women were killed and injured by Coalition strikes that hit a home in Haramat in eastern Mosul. ISIL-controlled Al A’amaq Media posted a video of the aftermath, and interviewed witnesses who claimed that children were struck. Other outlets also cited the Al A’amaq video.
On March 4th the Coalition said that it was now assessing two incidents in Mosul on January 2nd: “Currently, 19 reports of civilian casualties are still being assessed:  Jan. 2, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via social media report.” A month later the Coalition insisted that “Jan. 2, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via social media report: No Coalition strikes were conducted on that day in the geographic area of the reported civilian casualties.”
A second publicly unknown incident in Mosul that day was also denied by the Coalition.
Amnesty International interviewed what appear to be witnesses to the event. According to an unpublished account shared with Airwars: “Witnesses described the effects of one strike that they saw around 2 January in Hai Shuhada’. This was during a period of “preparatory shelling” in January, before the shelling intensified in February after which he stayed at home. The target was an ISIS weapons store in a house which contained a PKC machine gun and mortars. The house also contained civilian families who had no choice but to live there. ISIS had banned all civilian movement with a round the clock curfew. The families were all killed when the strike destroyed the house completely. Witnesses did not know how many people were killed but among the dead were women and children.”
Civilians reported killed: 4 women, 2 or more children

January 3rd, 2017: سرمدا Sarmada, Idlib governorate, Syria
Summary: A major US airstrike on an al Nusra Front headquarters – most likely a unilateral action – killed a significant number of militants. However, up to 26 Free Syrian Army prisoners held in the building were also reported killed, along with three children.
Fatah al Sham blamed the international Coalition, with spokesman Abu Anas al-Shami saying in a statement: “The headquarters targeted by the international coalition a short time ago are a main headquarters for that area and contains a number branch offices, leading to the killing of the brothers.”
However the Coalition’s spokesman Colonel John Dorrian later confirmed that the attack “was a US strike.” Given that the target was al Nusra, this was most likely a unilateral US action. As the Pentagon’s own spokesman Peter Cook also noted: ““Al-Qaida’s foreign terrorist fighter network used this headquarters as a gathering place, and their leaders directed terrorist operations out of this location. As you know, al-Qaida remains committed to carrying out terrorist attacks against the United States, our interests, and our allies and friends. We will continue to take actions to deny any safe haven for al-Qaida in Syria. We will not allow al-Qaida to grow its capacity to attack the United States or our allies around the world, and these strikes demonstrate that commitment.”
AFP cited the Syrian Observatory as saying that “Among the dead were leading members of the group formerly known as al-Nusra Front, who had been holding a meeting.” Almost all sources also reported civilian fatalities. 
Idlib Media Centre reported “Civilian martyrs and wounded including prisoners, due to Coalition warplanes shelling a Fatah Al-Sham building in Samara.” Shaam News reported that the strikes “killed around 40 –  the majority of whom are prisoners who were detained by Fatah Al-Sham.” Qasioun said the attack occurred at 3.55pm and injured “dozens.”
According to Al Khaleej, “44 were killed including 26 prisoners of the Free Syrian Army, 15 members of Fatah Al-Sham and three children and it’s not known whether the children were prisoners, or children of Fatah Al-Sham members.”
A local activist told Airwars the following: “
Al-Nusra Front still denies the existence of civilian [prisoners] in its headquarters. But families were able to recognise a number of the bodies who were previous detainees and missing people, which confirms that the headquarters was transformed into a prison recently.” One of those victims – 10 year old Haytham – was reportedly being held on theft charges when he was killed.
However Al Souria insisted that the facility was not a prison, and that more than 20 members of Al Nusra were instead killed.
Syrian Revolution has named the following four prisoners as killed:
Wael Yasin from Kafr Dyan
Adnan Mohammed Suleiman, from Ebien
Hajj Ibrahim Abdul-Aziz Jalloud, from Sarmada
Hassan Mohammed Bakir from Sarmada
In addition, a local activist provided Airwars with five additional names of reported civilian fatalities:

Majdi Alolo, from Maarat Misrin
Hussein Shahhoud Sharif, from Al-Atarib
Abdullah Al-Teyyawi, from Ziyara, Sahel Al-Ghab
Ahmad Al-Haji, from Dana
A 10-year old boy, Haytham, from Al-Taman’a village in Khan Sheikhoun.
On March 4th the Coalition said it did not have enough information to determine whether civilians died in the raid, noting: “Jan. 3, 2017, Sarmada, Syria, via social media report: The report contained insufficient information on the time, location and details of strike to assess its credibility.”
Civilians reported killed: 3 children and 20-26 prisoners (combatant status unclear)
Civilians reported injured: 12-24

Summary: Local sources and relatives of victims said that more than 20 civilians from three families were killed, including children and women, after Coalition airstrikes targeted their houses in front of Saddam mosque at the entrance of Farms district, north of Mosul.
Mosul Ateka reported that “18 people were killed in the Farms district after three houses were bombed in that area.” In comments below the post it was said that Al Haj Riad and his wife and his son Mahfouz House Haj Hamou were among the victims, which was reportedly carried out by the Coalition. In a later post by Mosul Ateka, including photos, Haj Riad Adnan and his wife and his son Imran Riad Adnan were also reported as killed in the strikes.
Nineveh Media Center said that “a medical source confirms the deaths of more than two dozen people as a result of aerial bombardment [which] targeted the wrong homes of unarmed civilians in the agricultural district of the northern city of Mosul.” Ajel Al Mosul (Facebook) also reported the incident, and spoke of 20 civilians killed in the raids in the farms neighbourhood. Sunni Muslim (Facebook) posted a video showing “The effects of the international coalition aircraft bombed the Farms district in the left side of the city of Mosul.” 

In a later investigation into the event, AFP interviewed eyewitness Abdulrahman Riyadh who said tyhe strike came at dawn on January 6th:
“Everything collapsed around me. I pushed the debris around me, I got up and I asked my brother if he was still alive. He was wounded in the leg. I told him to come into my bed and I started looking for my little brother, my father and my mother. I screamed but nobody answered.”
On March 4th the Coalition announced that it was assessing the event: “
Currently, 19 reports of civilian casualties are still being assessed… Jan. 6, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via social media report.” An official confirmed to Airwars that this was a reference to the al Zirai allegation.
On April 30th the Coalition flagged the event as ‘not credible’ noting: “Jan. 6, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via social media report: After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that no Coalition strikes were conducted in this geographic area that correspond to the report of civilian casualties.”
Based on available evidence Airwars continues to assess this event as fair.

Shaam News said that Shoaib’s home was targted by a drone in the attack, and that along with the three deaths several unspecified people were injured. Baladi News said land next to the house was targeted.
Syria analyst Charles Lister – pointing out the increase in US attacks on al Nusra, noted: “Nusra/JFS’s decision to operate as a mass movement – in the open and embedded as one component of a broader armed revolution has laid it out as intrinsically vulnerable to (a) air attack and (2) external infiltration.”

Dr. Mohammed Tayyib Al Leiyla was professor in civil and architectural engineering. He and his wife and daughter were reportedly killed in Coalition raids on 9th January 2017 (via Mosul Ateka Facebook)

Summary: Local sources said that three named civilians were killed after alleged Coalition airstrikes targeted near a medical center in the Officers neighborhood near the Fourth bridge.
Mosul Ateka named Dr. Mohammed Tayyip ِِAl Leyla, former Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, and his wife, Dr. Fatima Alhyial and their young daughter as victims of the airstrikes. They had reportedly stayed “for more than two days under the rubble after the bombing of their home, located in the Officers neighborhood.”
Several other sources reported the death of Professor Alleyla, praising his expertise in the field of engineering.
Iraqyoon quoted a security source who said that the three bodies were found under the rubble. The source added that “the anti-terror forces are trying to rescue two families from the rubble of their homes in the Officers district, because their houses [were hit by] aerial bombardment by coalition aircraft.” In another post, Iraqyoon cited a source saying that “The civilian martyrs of Mosul have by far outnumbered martyrs among fighters.” Wesal TV later suggested there may have been a second family buried under the rubble. 
On January 26th Stop The War published more details on the death of Dr al Leyla: “Dear Friends,
As you might have heard, the American Coalition have been bombing civilian areas in Mosul. Over the past few days the coalition targeted 3 houses of well known professors and researchers in Mosul University. One of them was my college professor and mentor Prof. Dr Mohamad Tybee Al-Layla.
Dr Al-Layla got his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Texas, USA. Worked as a faculty member in the Department of Civil Engineering in the Engineering College of University of Mosul since the early seventies of the last century. He was assigned as a Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department and the dean of the college twice. Supervised more than 30 PhD and Master degree thesis in Geotechnical Engineering and Civil Engineering. He published 48 research and technical papers in Iraq and abroad, and became an editing member of 3 scientific journals and magazines. He received the prestigious award of the Iraqi Science Day on June 2nd, 2014.
He worked sincerely and hard for about 40 years to educate and help thousands of highly efficient and intelligent engineers graduate, many of whom became ministers, deputy ministers, academics and high ranking executive directors in Geotechnical, Irrigation Engineering and other civil and political posts inside Iraq and abroad. Being one his students, it breaks our hearts that even though Dr Al-Layla was such a great scientific Iraqi figure who never let down or disappointed the University of Mosul community or even the city of Mosul in its hardest times, the crime of targeting his house by the American Coalition and his painful death along with his innocent family under the rubbles of his house, will remain an unforgettable disaster to us, one that all parties hold responsibility for, that reminds all of us that we are still sinking into the abyss the criminal US occupation of Iraq has led to.
May his soul rest in piece, and the souls of the many innocent thousands dying every month in Mosul by ISIS and the Coalition without accountability nor remorse.”

Iraq News Center said that bombing by “international Coalition aircraft” had led to the death and wounding of civilians, including women and children. Raedlay spoke of a “US raid” and reported the same number of dead and injured.
Amsi News said that “so-called international coalition raids into residential neighborhoods in the area of New Mosul… caused the death of 21 civilians on the spot, and injuring 14 others, as well as great destruction of property and homes.”
Prevision posted a video of the aftermath in which a witness reported a total number of 30 bodies: “It’s a residential compound including four houses. Each one includes two floors which were completely destroyed  by Coalition crusade airstrikes…we got out 14 bodies as yet, and there are 9 bodies still under rubble, and there are 4 women bodies and three children bodies in the house behind this compound…mostly kids and women.”
Alquds and Alwaght quoted Reuters saying that that the raids targeted the house of a senior ISIL leader, Abdul Qadir, who was not at home at the time of the bombing. However, several of his family members were reportedly killed. Alwaght spoke of “tens of civilians” massacred and blamed the Coalition.
An Amnesty International field investigation reported the following: “On 13 January at around 8.15am, explosions destroyed nine dwellings in al-Shuhada neighbourhood. “Kamel” and “Hashem”, two 26-year-old men from the area, described what they believe was a helicopter strike, which destroyed Kamel’s uncle’s house. They said the helicopter fired three times, with each rocket it launched destroying three single-room dwellings. Nine dwellings were destroyed in total.
“Hashem” described the attack as follows: “I was close by at my mother’s house. We were eating breakfast. At 8.15am and without warning the first rocket struck the homes, followed by two others. Each came from a different direction. It was all over in five or 10 minutes. After the last rocket landed we ran down to the scene. We were scared but we’re Arabs and if there are dead people we must go down to them. We dug the bodies out. We pulled them out of the rubble. They were torn apart. Heads and arms had been severed. The target was a well-known IS commander called Harbi Abdel Gadir. He was killed, along with almost everyone else in the homes: more than 40 people. All the women and children were killed. There were only three survivors, Mohamed, Asher and Salman. They were taken to an IS-run hospital.
According to the witnesses, this strike killed one IS target at a cost of 40 civilian lives.Based upon the information available, this attack should be investigated as a possible disproportionate attack.”

The strike destroyed the vehicle and killed two members of IS, in addition to a civilian who happened to be there. Seven others were also injured.” A young girl named as Alaa Hafez Hussein al Said also later died of injuries sustained in the raid (see below tweet.)

In April, The Times visited the site in east Mosul’s Baysan neighborhood, saw the leveled home and spoke with survivors who said eight civilians were killed. Omar Hasan Abdul Qadir, 67, said the eight were all his relatives, including four grandchildren.
“We will cooperate with anyone and talk to anyone who wants to talk to us about the incident,” he said by phone Sunday, weeping. “I would love for them to know what happened to us and how they killed eight members of our family. We have been devastated, devastated.” …
Qadir, the survivor of the Jan. 17 airstrike, said he is still willing to assist the coalition in investigating. “I really don’t know at all what was the justification to hit the house with many kids and women inside. I do have witnesses that our house was hit,” he said.

But [Coalition colonel] Scrocca said the coalition could not find Qadir or other survivors of the strike. “All we have is an allegation, no proof or way to interview victims,” he said.”

January 25th 2017: (I370a) وادي حجر Wadi Hajjar near Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Three civilians were reportedly injured by ISF (or possibly Coalition) mortars according to eyewitness interviews by Amnesty International.
A previously unpublished assessment which Amnesty shared with Airwars reads as follows: “On 25 January an ISF mortar [Airwars note: presumed – but possibly US, see below] landed on their house in Wadi Hajjar and caused it to collapse. XX believes it was an ISF mortar as he saw a drone in the skies above the house five minutes before the explosion. The house was completely destroyed. The target was likely to have been the neighbouring house, which had been taken over by ISIS. ISIS had also taken over their house 20 days previously.

XX’s mother – “I have a five year old son whose legs were broken (when the house collapsed due to the mortar strike).” It also opened a wound on her 17 year old daughter’s head. XX’s 17 year old wife suffered a shrapnel wound to her back.”
US forces used heavy mortars in support of ISF during the battle for West Mosul. However it is unclear on which date these began, A senior Coalition official told Airwars that “Mortar fire is not recorded as a strike so we do not have data to provide on specifically where and when they have been used.  I spoke to the unit on the ground though, and due the positioning of Coalition forces to support the liberation of East Mosul and the limited range of the mortars, it is very doubtful they were fired prior to the initiation of the liberation of West Mosul.”
While it appears most likely this reported event was a result of ISF actions, it remains possible that it was a Coalition event.

Summary: A reported Coalition (or possibly Russian) airstrike which hit a Syrian Red Crescent hospital in Idlib injured up to a dozen civilians. The Coalition later denied involvement, though a unilateral US action remained possible.
The intended target of the dawn strike appeared to be the militant gropup Fatah al Sham at a base at the former Carlton Hotel. But numerous sources reported extensive damage to a Red Crescent hospital in the city. According to Shaam News “The bombing also caused the injury of nine members of the Red Crescent who were at the center during the raids, where the bombardment caused the interruption of the Centre’s work fully with the service.”
In a video it issued of the event, Step News interviewed a rescue worker at the scene: “At 3am we woke up to the noise of an air raid. We at the civil defence and the fire brigade headed to the target location and saw the Red Crescent centre/carlton hit with a missile that went through from the roof to the first floor. God was merciful as it didn’t reach at the way to the bottom where there were 30 members of the Red Crescent. They would’ve been hit. There are a few injured… we put the fires out and we took the injured to the hospitals.”
Four members of the local civil defence were also reportedly injured while attending the scene.
Most sources blamed the Coalition, although the Syrian Network said Russia may also have been responsible. In April the Coalition stated: “Feb. 1, 2017, near Idlib, Syria, via social media report: No Coalition strikes were conducted on that day in the geographic area of the reported civilian casualties.”

February 6th, 2017: ١٧ تموز في الموصل 17 Tamuz neighbourhood, Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: In an incident previously reported by so-called Islamic State, the Coalition confirmed on April 1st that it had accidentally injured three non-combatants in an attack. ISIS had reported five deaths and 29 injuries. Locals also said at least five people had died. 

The Coalition noted in its monthly casualty report: “near Mosul, Iraq, via self-report: During a strike on ISIS fighters, it was assessed that three civilians were unintentionally injured when they entered the target area after the munition was released.
Officials later confirmed to Airwars that the event took place at 17 Tamuz. For the same date, ISIL’s media wing had claimed that “two children, a woman, and two men were killed and 24 others were wounded due to coalition warplanes shelling in 17 Tamuz neighbourhood in Mosul.”

That claim was later corroborated by eyewitnesses who told Amnesty International in a previously unpublished report that “In first week of February, in the afternoon, there was an attack on a building next to al-Jamhouri hospital. The building had five floors. The strike collapsed the building – it was completely destroyed. Only the first floor was left. They started bringing the bodies to the hospital, and they used the loudspeakers to call for help. I went to the building as soon as I could – I got there 10 minutes later. Dust was everywhere, and so many bodies were buried under the rubble. I used a shovel to move the rubble and to try to uncover the bodies. I saw at least five bodies, dead. I think it was an airstrike, because the damage was so huge, but I’m not sure. [He was also not sure how many civilians / how many fighters killed.]”

February 7th, 2017: ادلب Idlib city, Idlib governorate, Syria
Summary: A major airstrike on Idlib city killed at least 24 civilians and injured up to 300 more. Reports blamed both Russia and the US-led Coalition for the attack. The Coalition has expressly denied any involvement – though a unilateral US action remains possible.

The attack – which reportedly involved both airstrikes and missiles – caused massive casualties. However attribution was accused. Most blamed Russia – including Idlib Media Center, LCCSY, Halab Today, Step News, Shaam News, Idlib Media Centre, the Syrian Network and Al Araby.
Others said both the Coalition and Russia were responible – including Syria News, Baladi News, the Syrian Observatory and Al Jazeera. All for Syria was alone in blaming the Assad regime – though a later report went on to blame Russia and the Coalition – while the White Helmets did not attribute responsibility.
Complicating attribution, Russia later denied any role in the attack. The US also may have carried out a separate targeted killing on the city that day.
A later video by Halab Today referred to destruction caused by both “Russian and Coalition” warplanes. 
Syria News Desk also reported that the warplanes were “believed to belong to Russia and the Coalition”.
Step reported: “Our correspondent pointed out that among the  Russian raids were two raids by the international coalition which targeted Sheikh Abu Al Qassem al Muhajer who is a member of Haiat Tahrir al Sham [formerly Fatah al Sham Front] ijuring him. He was rescued  from under the rubble.”
Baladi went further, reporting that “We received from the observatories the information which is semi confirmed that there was coordination between the coalition and Russian planes. This was what the observatories confirmed.”
Alaraby reported that Russian warships and warplanes were responsible.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that “it is not known whether they were Russian warplanes or warplanes of the international coalition, or if they were a combination of both.”
In its May 2017 report the Coalition denied responsibility: “Feb. 7, 2017, near Idlib, Syria, via social media report: No Coalition strikes were conducted on that day in the geographic area of the reported civilian casualties. The closest strike to the report of possible civilian casualties was 90 km away.”

February 10th-20th, 2017: Near Saffi Rahman mosque, Tal Roman, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: In a previously unreported incident, local eyewitnesses told Amnesty International researchers of an event at Tal Roman in ‘mid February’ which killed eight civilians. The description of a ‘smart missile’ indicated a Coalition action. 
According to a detailed incident report shared with Airwars: “The house behind our house was hit in the middle of February [not sure of the date]. 8 people died – the whole family. They were having lunch on the terrace on the roof [in that little house thing on the roof]. It was a smart missile that hit them, and I am sure of that. Before the missiles hits, there is a whistle – not like the mortars. I went to the place 10 minutes later, and the family was in pieces, and the [small roof house] was destroyed. All I could see was pieces of their flesh – there weren’t even enough body parts to collect. The house was right next to Saffi Rahman Mosque. That mosque was destroyed in a different strike.
When we escaped, already the neighbourhood had been hit many times with strikes. There were so many attacks that you can’t even count them. The ISF started using the “bareena” rockets, which drill down into the ground.
It’s fine if they destroy the streets and the intersections, but they shouldn’t have been hitting the neighbourhoods and the houses, where the families were staying.

IS would be in the neighbourhood on their motorbikes and their cars, and then 10 minutes later they would disappear. They could move easily through the openings in the house, and they would come and go.  
They were not talking to us, except to tell us that we could never leave. If you disobey them, you will face three punishments – beating, prison, or execution. They would just go through the houses as they wanted. They would stay for 5 days, or 10 days, and then change. After they leave, the airstrike would come, and the families would die.”

February 17th-18th 2017: Al Jumhuri medical community complex, western Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Several sources claimed that civilians died in a Coalition airstrike on a medical complex in western Mosul. While Iraqi Spring and Raedlay spoke of 18 dead and 47 wounded, News of Iraq reported the death of a child in a video.
The Coalition confirmed to have carried out the strike, but did not state any civilian casualties. It stated in a press release issued on February 18th:
“With the approval of the government of Iraq, Coalition forces struck an ISIS command and control headquarters and propaganda facility in Western Mosul on Feb. 17. The five-story Bab Sinjar administration facility was located in the Al Jumhuri medical community complex. ISIS continues to ignore the Law of Armed Conflict and uses protected sites such as hospitals, schools, and mosques to try and shield themselves from Coalition airstrikes.
In this instance, the Coalition was able to determine through intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance efforts that ISIS did not use the building for any medical purposes and that civilians were no longer accessing the site. The intelligence showed that its sole function was as a military command and control facility for ISIS to oversee its operations against the people of Iraq.
Coalition forces comply with the Law of Armed Conflict, work diligently to be precise in our airstrikes, and take all feasible precautions during the planning and execution of air strikes to reduce the risk of harm to civilians. The air strikes conducted against legitimate ISIS military targets are just one of the ways the Coalition continues to work by, with, and through its Iraqi partners to defeat ISIS in Iraq.”
However Iraqi Spring Media Centre and Raedlay (Facebook) later reported “the killing of 18 civilians and wounding 47 others, including women and children, after coalition airstrikes on Medicine # city of Mosul in the right side of the city.” The source for the claim appeared to be so-called Islamic State.
Alrafidain Channel posted a video (GRAPHIC) showing the aftermath of the strike. News of Iraq posted the same video, saying: “watch a child dying from the effects of the bombing of the international Coalition on the Medical City Hospital in the right side of the city of Mosul”.
