March 2017

March 1st 2017: Al Tabaqa, Raqqa governorate, Syria
Summary: Between two and 12 civilians including four children were killed and up to 14 others injured in an alleged Coalition airstrike on Al Tabaqa, according to sources.
Smart News initially reported that “A medical source said that two civilians died and three were wounded, including a child in critical condition.” Raqqa is Being Slaughtered said “warplanes launched a raid near the church roundabout in al Tabaqa” – though didn’t mention the culprit. The monitor later put the death toll at 12, as did Asharqiya Voice, LCCSY and Shaam News, which also blamed the Coalition.
According to Syria News Desk, four children were among the 12 killed. It reported: “The media opposition activist Mohamed Osman, quoting civilian sources from within al Tabaqa city, told Syria News Desk:  ‘the international Coalition targeted residential sites near the church roundabout in the Second [al Thani] Quarter within al Tabaqa with several rocket blasts. This caused the destruction of four residential buildings consisting of a two-storeys, and the burning or another house and two cars, in addition to material damage to a number of shops.”
In its July 2017 civilian casualty report, the Coalition deemed the incident non-credible due to what it described as insufficient evidence: “March 1, 2017, near Tabqah, Syria, via social media report: After review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find that civilians were harmed in this strike.”
Civilians reported killed: 12, including 4 children

Urgent Mosul news reported that “this morning warplanes targeted Omar Black Mosque in al-Faruq area on the right side [with] several missiles, which led to the death of more than 50 civilians and the destruction of homes adjacent to the mosque.
Residents had also reported this to Reuters, said Mosul MNN. “They added that the neighboring houses were damaged or collapsed because of the blast, without giving precise estimates of the number of dead and injured because the regulation restricts their movements. A spokesman for the Coalition led by the United States said he did not know that an attack targeted a mosque. For his part, the Iraqi military officer told the media that the battle continues, and that forces [may be] targeting elements of Daesh wherever they may be, but [he] declined to mention targeting this particular mosque.”
One resident of al-Faruq neighbourhood, Thanon Alaa Younis (on the right), was named as killed in the raids.
In its July 2017 casualty report the Coalition appeared to deny responsibility for the attack, noting: “March 1, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via social media report: After a review of available information it was assessed that no Coalition strikes were conducted in the geographic area that correspond to the report of civilian casualties.”

March 2nd 2017:  موصل الجديدة New Mosul neighbourhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: An eyewitness, Ghania Hassan – resident of the al-Jadida (New Mosul) neighborhood – told Foreign Policy that more than 56 civilians were killed after a Coalition missile hit a house where they were gathered, reportedly forced to by ISIL combattants.  The eyewitness account as written down by Sam Kimball, Foreign Policy:
“If they stopped the airstrikes, that would be better,” said Ghania Hassan, a resident of the al-Jadida neighborhood. “The coalition has destroyed us.” Hassan has good reason to hate the coalition airstrikes. On March 2, Islamic State militants barged into her home at 5 a.m. and took her and others to another home, where she was packed in with what she believes were well over 100 others in the basement. This may have been an attempt to use the civilians as human shields.
In the basement, Hassan and the group listened to Islamic State fighters firing machine guns nearby. She said that the owner of the house, a man named Abu Imad Ayad, knew his home might be struck by airplanes because of the Islamic State fighters firing all around it, and that he and his son climbed to the roof and tried to signal to the air force not to fire on them.
But at 11 a.m., a missile screeched in and the house crumbled on top of her. She said God is the only reason she survived. “They went up to the roof and were saying, ‘Don’t shoot.’ Then the house fell, and both died,” she said in a matter-of-fact tone.
Hassan said neighbors pulled her out — and would eventually excavate 56 bodies from the rubble. She maintains that it wasn’t just one missile, but several, that fell on the homes of al-Jadida. “House upon house fell,” she said.

March 3rd 2017: (I410a) المنصور Al Mansour neighborhood of West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Surviving family members told Buzzfeed investigators that five members of a family died in a suspected Coalition strike. The alliance later accepted responsibility.
Buzzfeed casenotes for the incident were later shared with Airwars:
“GPS Coordinates: 36°19’02.5″N, 43°06’35.1″E
Date and approximate time: March 3, at around 11am
Casualties: The nephew and four nieces of Zayd Younes Mohamed, all deceased. Four surviving children and brother, some with injuries.
Comments: This strike was not concurrent with the ISF assault into the neighborhood. ISIS had that day moved an anti-aircraft gun on the other side of a thin wall beside the home. The strike target the gun. It destroyed the home in the process; witnesses were not sure if the gun was also hit. Zayd and his brother buried the dead children. When they approached the Iraqi government for compensation, they were told that since the bodies were no longer at the site of the blast, the government could not prove that the dead were victims of the blast, and their case was rejected.”
In its August monthly casualty report the Coalition accepted responsibility for the event, noting that “March 3, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via media report: During a strike on an ISIS machine gun position engaging ISF, it was assessed that five civilians, not previously observed during the engagement, were unintentionally killed.”
Officials confirmed to Airwars that this was the al Mansour neighbourhood, and provided matching co-ordinates.

March 5th 2017: (I411a)  حي الابار Hal al Abar neighborhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: In a previously unreported incident, Amnesty field researchers spoke with survivors of a March 5th incident which left five non-combatants dead and five more injured – all from one family.
The following unpublished report was shared with Airwars: “I survived an attack on 5 March. Our house was encircled by IS and ISF fighters, and we were under house arrest – we couldn’t leave the house at all. Our house is in Hai al-Abar neighbourhood, in the area bordering Yarmouk neighbourhood, near Mahatat al-Qafar.
I was in the sink, washing my hands, and suddenly I lost consciousness. I didn’t hear anything in the air, and I don’t remember anything before I fainted. When I woke up, I was in the hospital.  We lost five members of my family in this attack:

XXXX, 62 years old – my father in law
XXXX, 26 years old – my husband
XXXX, 21 years old  – my brother in law
XXXX, 18 years old – my brother in law
XXXX, 17 years old, my relative.
The rest of the family all had light injuries from the shrapnel. There were 10 of us total who were in the house. We found out later, from neighbours and relatives, that the house was completely collapsed from a mortar attack. My leg was shattered from something falling on it, and I have shrapnel in my face and my right hand. They took me to a hospital controlled by IS in my neighbourhood, and I stayed there for a few weeks, but then they sent me home because they said they didn’t have space for me. I went and stayed with my family in my uncle’s house, in the same neighbourhood, also near Mahatat al-Qafar. I was there with my father, mother, sister, my husband’s uncle, and his children. We were all staying in one room, because that was the safest place to be in the house.

After a few weeks, in the beginning of April, the ISF came to our neighbourhood, in the middle of the night. They were two houses away from our house, and we went out to them.
There were no stretchers, so my family had to put me on a vegetable cart. They sent us to the Mansour neighbourhood, where they had a military ambulance. From al-Mansour, they took me to Ghayara, and we had to cross over the river in a boat – that was the only way. It was the most difficult time, because I can’t swim, and I would have died if I had fallen in. The river was at least 50 meters wide.
They put me in a boat with three other people. They were in the centre of the boat, and they put me on the bow of the boat, on a piece of wood that they were holding in place with their hands. We made it, thank god. I was sure the boat would tip over.  In the end we made it across the river, and then they took me here, to this hospital.”

March 7th 2017: (I415a)  حي المنصور Al Mansour neigbourhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: There were reports that children and women were killed or injured due to different kinds of shelling and airstrikes on Mansour neighborhood in West Mosul.
@shvm_90 said in a Tweet: “Heavy shelling and brutal air and artillery aimed at reviving #right side [of Mosul] and the strongest was on #Mansour neighborhood and the fall of victims from children and women”
Amnesty International field researchers interviewed survivors, later sharing their notes with Airwars: “
We tried to find any way to survive in our house. We found some desks from a school, and we burned them for the heat. We used to make bread using the fire. These were very hard days for us, full of hunger and fear. We just sat there, hearing the sound of the mortars and the airstrikes. Shrapnel was falling through the air like rain. We sat together, all of us, huddled together, near the wall, waiting for a bullet to come through the wall and kill us.
We were on the ground floor of the house, moving between two rooms, for 14 days. We knew the glass would fly in the house if our house was hit, so we used wood, metal, anything we could to cover the windows. We slept on the floor, on a few cushions. It felt like the explosions never stopped.

We weren’t as afraid of the airstrikes, because the airstrikes were targeting specific locations. What we were afraid of was the mortars, because they were striking everywhere.
On 7 March, there was a mortar attack on our house. Usually everyone was inside, but at that time, XXXX and XXXX were outside. [XXXX – 16 years old; XXXX – 15 years old. They left their tent and joined the interview at this point, and showed us their injuries – XXXX had an injury from the shrapnel on her head, which was visible, and XXXX said that she had shrapnel on her back.]
XXXX: We were outside, chatting in the garden. It was a sunny day. Suddenly there was a strong explosion. I think it was a mortar.
Different interviewee: “We heard something hitting the roof. There were two floors in the building, and the top floor collapsed, and the fence outside was destroyed.”
Separate interviewees told Amnesty the following: “On 7 March, around 2pm in the afternoon, there was a big attack on our neighbour’s house. Their house is about 50 meters away from our house. A family of injured people ran to our house. They had injuries on their heads, their faces, their legs. There was blood everywhere. All of the injuries were from shrapnel. Some of us tried to help them, because we knew a little bit of first aid.
Second interviewee
There was a big attack on 7 March. We were staying in al-Mansour, in a house with 40-50 other people – four or five families. Six IS fighters were using the house. They were standing in the front of the house when the attack came. Around 2pm, I heard the sound of the planes, and then the rockets came. There were two rockets, and they destroyed three houses near to the house we were in. The houses were collapsed. I was probably 50 meters away from the strikes. There were two big explosions, and dust, sand, and shrapnel was everywhere. We didn’t go to the collapsed buildings, because we expected there might be another attack – that had happened before. Some of the people from the attack came into our house. One person later died, from the injuries he had from the shrapnel. Another person had an injury on her jaw.”

Summary: Three civilians including a child were reportedly killed, after an alleged Coalition strike targeted boats on the River Euphrates.
According to Smart News: “Three civilians were killed and two others injured on Tuesday, following the aerial bombardment is likely to be the international coalition on a on the Euphrates River near Raqqa city, north of Syria, as reported by a local source speaking to Smart.
The source said the raid targeted a boat carrying civilians to cross between the two banks of the Euphrates River, near the “new bridge” Al Jasir al Jadid,  killing two men and a child and wounding several others.
The source explained that civilians were resorting to use boats to move between the two shores of the river after the destruction by the international coalition of al Maghla bridge Amolh in order to increase the siege on the Islamic State, as the other two bridges were also destroyed managing to isolate  Raqqa from the southern countryside.
Some of the boats belong to civilians and local fishermen, and are used as a means of movement in exchange for financial remuneration ranging between 300 and 500 Syrian pounds per person depending on the size of the boat and its type (electric or manual ), according to the source.”
Tahrir al Sham militants also mentioned a Coalition raid, though made no mention of casuialties: “crusader international coalition planes launched raids on Raqqa city targeting the enrtrace of al Jisr al Jadid [the New Bridge] and the garage in front of the Euphrates gas station.” Al Araby al Jadid also mentioned strikes on a number of bridges that day.

March 7th-17th est: (I430b) الرسالة  ٌDur al Resala neighborhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Nine members of a family were reported killed in an airstrike in ‘early to mid March’ including four children and three women.
Amnesty International has published the following account: “
Witnesses told Amnesty International that in early-mid March (they could not be certain of the exact date), a warplane hit two houses in al-Risala neighbourhood, near al-Hamdilullah mosque. “Karim”, a local resident, described being at home at 11am on the day in question, sheltering from shelling in the back room of his house. He heard an explosion nearby that was followed around 15 minutes later by a second one.
Karim said: “I later found out that the first explosion had hit a house on a street behind mine, perhaps 100m away. It was an old house and it collapsed completely. Six people were killed, all civilians. They were a simple family. Abdel Rahman was the owner and head of the family. He worked as a grave digger. He was killed along with his wife and their four children. The children were aged four, five, six and seven.
“I didn’t go to the scene of the first explosion but I ran to the scene of the second one. This one destroyed a house on my street, less than 100m down. I didn’t see the victims’ bodies; they were buried in the rubble and we didn’t manage to dig them out. It was a rented house and the owner lived nearby. He had come to see the damage and was in the street shouting. He told us that three people had been living there and they had all been killed. They were ordinary civilians, two women and one man.
According to other witnesses, there had been an IS checkpoint on the corner of the street, around 25m from Abdel Rahman’s house. The IS position was usually manned by three fighters, who according to the witnesses, were all killed in the attack. After the first strike, IS fighters were seen running from the neighbourhood. One witness saw two IS fighters running along his street, where the second explosion happened. They had run past the house that was destroyed in the second explosion 10 minutes before it was struck. They were not killed or injured in the explosion, as they had left the area by the time it happened.
Amnesty International cannot be sure whether the delivery system for these explosions was a warplane, as some of the witnesses assumed, or another weapon system. Whatever delivery system was used, the incident illustrates the toll on civilians of using explosive weapons with wide area effects in west Mosul. Six civilians were killed in the first strike, which appears to have been aimed at an IS target that was stationary at the time of attack.
The target for the second strike is less clear, although witnesses told Amnesty International they believe it was an attempt to hit mobile IS targets as they ran through the neighbourhood. Three civilians and no IS fighters were killed in the second strike. Based on the information available, the method of attack pro-government forces employed appears to have been indiscriminate.”

Summary: In a major incident, up to 24 civilians reportedly died when an aircraft allegedly struck a vehicle just outside Al bu Rashed. Most of those killed were said to be children.
All source blamed the Coalition, except one, which said that this was the work of Russia.

March 9th 2017:  السنجك Sanjak village, Al Qa’im, Western Anbar province, Iraq
or Al Hari border area, Al Bukamal region, Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria

Summary: Local sources said that an airstrike targeted ISIL members on the Iraq-Syria border, which also resulted in the death of a civilian woman.
Unusually, the incident was attributed to both sides of the border. geolocation by Airwars volunteer Christiaan Triebert (see map below) has concluded that they are almost certainly the same incident.
On the Iraq  side, Al Sanjak village in Al Qa’im province was reported hit. Al Qa’im Al Hadath reported that the shelling had targeted houses belonging to ISIL, that were used as a storage for weapons and suicide belts. It also reported the death of the woman. It did not say who carried out the airstrike. A single other source, a local Sputnik correspondent, reported that “dozens of leaders and elements of Daesh were killed and wounded after the shelling”. It did not report civilian casualties, but blamed the Coalition for the raids.
On the Syrian side, it was also reported that a woman died in an airstrike on the Al Hari border area in the Al Bukamal countryside – though reports were conflicted as to whether Coalition or Iraqi warplanes were to blame. According to the Al Natek Network, “international Coalition raids targeted the village of Al Hari village in the Al Bukamal countryside, leading to the death of one woman and the destruction of a weapons depot in the area.” Alaraby also blamed the Coalition. However, the majority of other sources said that Iraqi forces were responsible. Euphrates Post reported that “Iraqi airplanes destroyed a weapons depot belonging to IS near al Hari border  area”. Others reports re-tweeted each other, also attributing the woman’s death to the Iraqi air force. A second report by Euphrates Post said that an Iraqi woman died in the strike.

March 10th: اليرموك  Al-Yarmouk neighbourhood, West of Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq 
Summary: Local press and residents, as well as al-Amaq (ISIL) press sources, said that Coalition shelling had targeted several neighborhoods at the right side of Mosul, especially near apartments in Al-Yarmouk neighbourhood, with munitions equipped with controversial White Phosphorus. No civilian casualties were reported.
Iraqi Spring posted a video on Facebook of al-Amaq agency [ISIL], showing “the effects of the US phosphorus bombing, which targeted residential neighborhoods near the Yarmouk Apartments in the right side of # Mosul city.”
Urgent Mosul News also reported heavy shelling by warplanes in the neighbourhood, but unlike all other sources, did not identify them as being Coalition aircraft.
A Bellingcat investigation later concluded: “The international US-led Coalition appears to have used white phosphorous (WP) munitions in their battle against the so-called Islamic State (IS) in Mosul, Iraq, based on a video posted online by an IS-linked propaganda outlet. It is known that the US has used WP in Iraq, and while aware of the video, the Coalition neither confirmed or denied the specific use of WP in Mosul. It has not been possible to establish whether civilians were present at the targeted site, but when WP is used in residential neighbourhood the tactical military advantage may well be outweighed the stigma of using WP in civilian areas, as a Human Rights Watch employee stated earlier. While the statement was made in the context of attacks, it also holds for other usages of WP. No multimedia or textual information could be found hinting towards civilian injuries or casualties due to the alleged use of WP.”

Ninawa media center launched an appeal, stating: “Appeal to the leadership of the Liberation of Nineveh operations. Indiscriminate shelling intensifies [in] the neighborhoods under ISIL control at the right side (the old city and western neighborhoods), the level of victims rises to a scary level. Indiscriminate shelling does not affect the Daesh gangs but kills children, women, young people and destroys houses of the residents. We urge you on behalf of the people of Mosul”
Witnesses also reported a strike in al-Jawsaq neighbourhood. Reportedly, the Coalition bombed an ISIL car, thereby also wounding Thamer Abu Reem – who lost his legs in the bombing – and killing three of his daughters (of 2 years and 14 years and unknown age). Mr. Abu Reem had said while crying: “I know that the pilot did not know that my daughters were there”.

March 14th: Al-Mahatta (near the Station), West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Local residents told journalists of the French newspaper Mediapart that 26 people were killed after an airstrike reportedly carried out by an “American-built F-16” targeted an ISIL combatant who was sitting on the roof of their house. A young girl was also severely injured.
The report by Mediapart.fr [in translation] reads: “In the neighbourhood of Mahatta, close to the station, 26 civilians paid the price with their lives, killed by an airstrike on Tuesday 14th, around 4pm in the afternoon.

Amad, Mahmoud, Youssef, Marwan, Abdullah Fatah, his wife, his mother are the five direct witnesses interviewed by Mediapart, refugees in some houses south of the city.
It was the men of the 2nd Division of the Special Iraqi Forces who asked for this strike which then killed 26 civilians in a house in Mahatta.
Stunned, Khalef Khudair, 50 years, spreads out the identity cards of the 18 members of his family killed by the attack on the floor of a house where he took refuge. “It was Tuesday 14 March, between 4pm and 4.15pm, he explains. A man from ISIL was posted on our roof. I was in a room with two other people. Two enormous missiles fell on the house. The room next to it, where all the others were, was completely destroyed.” After he blacked out, until people took him out of the rubble.
A neighbour, Ahmed Abu Ahmed, 41, says he saw everything: “The ISIL fighter had installed a heavy PKC machine-gun on one of the roofs. The Special Iraqi Forces first tried to come to him, but he succeeded in repelling them. Then two missiles fell, one right after the other.” As a former policeman, Ahmed Abu Ahmed is convinced that it is an F-16 aircraft – an American-built bomber, which carried out the strike. He rushed to search in the rubble until nightfall.
At first count, there were nineteen bodies.
But the next day, neighbors hear a voice that came from under the ruins: “Mamma! Dad !”  Ahmed Abu Ahmed searched again and found a little girl, legs broken, wounded in the head, and carried her to an ambulance. The excavations continued and seven more bodies are identified, putting the toll at twenty-six dead. The relatives of the victims claim only one thing: to be allowed to bury the corpses, which they had to leave behind, when the Iraqi forces evacuated them from the area.
In its July 2017 casualty report the Coalition appeared to rule itself out of the incident, noting that “
March 14, 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. The closest strike to the report of possible civilian casualties was approximately a kilometer away.”
Coordinates supplied to Airwars by the Coalition (36.339149, 43.109260) placed the assessment at the al Roubah area of Mosul, around 800m from the station indicating that this was the most likely claim being assessed.

March 15th: (I430c)  الهرمات Hermat neighbourhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Local eyewitnesses reported the deaths of 25 civilians following an air or artillery strike on the hermit area of West Mosul.
An unpublished Amnesty International field investigation was shared with Airwars: ““On the street we were staying, in my uncle’s house, three houses were levelled by one attack, around 12pm on 15 March. I don’t know if it was mortars, or artillery, or an airstrike. I think it was artillery, because I heard the “ssssss” sound before it hit. After the attack, 5 families were dead under the rubble – at least 25 people. One of the families was headed by “Abu Amar.” No IS fighters were killed. Our neighbours said that IS fighters ate lunch in one of the house, and they prayed there. Of course the strike came 20 minutes later, when the fighters were already gone. I saw the destroyed houses the next morning, when we ran out of the house. The houses were on our same street, just one house away from ours.”

March 16th 2017: Al Jina town, west of Aleppo, Aleppo governorate, Syria

Summary: A unilateral US drone strike on a mosque complex near al Jina town killed between 37 and 62 civilians according to multiple reports and eyewitness statements. While the US has admitted it carried out the attack, officials have claimed that al Jina’s Omar Ibn al Khattab mosque where the casualties occurred was not targeted in the raid. The Pentagon instead insisted that “an al Qaeda in Syria meeting location” had been struck – though announced an investigation into reported civilian deaths.
The evening attack at al Jina – which was initially blamed by many on Russia – was in fact according to the Washington Post conducted by two US Reaper drones , which fired six Hellfire missiles at the location at around 7pm before dropping a 500lb bomb. The results were devastating.
At least 300 people were reportedly present for an evangelical religious class at Jina’s new mosque when it was struck – among them some children. According to Step News, “US aircraft targeted a Dawah centre of al Dawah Wa al Tabligh. The  group holds a weekly meeting in one of their centres every Thursday which is attended by dozens of students of religious studies, sheikhs, shariaa experts and  fighters in the Islamic factions and civilians from the region.” In Islamic theology according to Wikipedia, “the purpose of da’wah is to invite people, both Muslims and non-Muslims, to understand the worship of Allah as expressed in the Qur’an and the sunnah of the prophet Muhammad and to inform them about Muhammad.”
Suspicions of US involvement were first raised by online monitors including Bellingcat, after missile fragments were found at the scene. After initially claiming a unilateral strike that day was in Idlib, CENTCOM confirmed to Airwars late on the night of March 16th that the attack at Al Jina had in fact been by the US.Spokesman Major Josh Jacques told reporter Samuel Oakford that the target was  “assessed to be a meeting place for al Qaeda, and we took the strike… It happened to be across the street from where there is a mosque.” He said the mosque was not the target, and that it wasn’t hit directly. Both CENTCOM and the Pentagon told Airwars that they were further investigating the attack.

The Pentagon released an afterjstrike image which it claimed showed it hadn't struck the mosque

In an effort to discredit claims that it had targeted worshippers, the Pentagon also issued a photograph which it said showed the mosque at al Jina intact. However this appeared to backfire, with most commentators noting that both buildings including that targeted were in fact mosques.   
The White Helmets – more usually seen aiding casualties from Assad regime or Russian strikes, led the rescue effort. It eventually estimated that at least 50 people had died. As Shaam News reported, “The bombing was following by residents and rescue teams putting out a call to all defense teams in the region calls for help for all defense centers and ambulance crews in the area to go to the site shelling and help lift the martyrs out of the basement.”
One angry eyewitness told Smart News: “This is a praying center. For those aged from 8 to 60 years old. Unarmed civilians. Where is the terrorism? They are unarmed, not terrorists. Peaceful civilians praying. I am one of them, there are no terrorists here. There are almost 250 people including children and the elderly. Many are under the rubble and we don’t have the equpiment to lift them. Assad, Europe and Russia took everything from us, how can we lift them? By our hands? All you do is send us a food basket, we don’t need it anymore. Keep it for yourselves.” A number of cities and towns in the area reportedly cancelled Friday Prayers for fear of further attacks.
Syria News Desk claimed that 15 children were among the dead. While this number cold not be verified, the White Helmets have named five victims under the age of 17, and a child was filmed being rescued from the rubble at al Jina.
The militant Islamic rebel group Ahrar al Sham – the apparent target of the US attack – later issued a statement attacking “the shameful spectacle where the an international community has turned from a passive silent party in towards  the Syrian case to a contributor to the killing of the Syrian people.”
Turkey’s deputy Prime Minister condemned the US attack as a ‘war crime.’ However Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that “In principle, we have no doubts that the US military targeted terrorists.”

Mohammad Khaled Orabi, 14 years old, al Jina

March 17th-18th 2017: (I441) الموصل الجديدة  Al Jadida/ New Mosul neighborhood, Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: In the highest reported civilian casualty event of the war against ISIL, as many as 230 or even 520 civilians were killed in a catastrophic event at al Jadida. Local residents, press sources said the civilians, most of them women and children, were killed by airstrikes on the New Mosul neighbourhood. The Coalition later confirmed it had carried out a strike “in the vicinity of alleged civilian casualties” and launched an investigation. This eventually concluded that a US bomb had killed between 105 and 141 civilians – though the Coalition also claimed that ISIL explosives had contributed to the disaster.
The Iraqi military initially placed the death toll at 61 killed – and blamed ISIL. This was at odds with Iraqi civil defence on the scene, who reported at least 137 bodies at first and said the incident was caused by an airstrike.
It was reported that a house near Al Rahma Al Ahli Hospital was bombed in which hundreds of displaced people were hosted, providing them food and shelter as well as a cellar to provide protection from airstrikes. However there were also claims that ISIL had deliberately trapped people in the building.
There was some reporting confusion about the date of the incident, which was placed variously between March 17th-20th. It is possible that a number of additional strikes in the near vicinity over some days may also have caused casualties.
Both the Coalition and Iraq had announced investigations into whether they had conducted an airstrike which may have ‘iandvertently’ ignited a fuel truck and perhaps a VBIED at the scene.
Correspondences Team identified the house as the 3-storey building of Haj Tawfik house. Abdulrahman Al Lawzi reported on Facebook that the Coalition hit the house in New Mosul and that all the people in it had died. 56 male bodies had been found, but “rescue efforts were unable to reach the lower hall where the bodies of women and children are buried”. In total, 126 people were reported killed, as well as 8 in the house next door. Later, Waradana news said that about 150 bodies were still under the rubble. Mosul Insta, a local Facebook group, reported as many as 250 dead:
“More than 250 human beings lost their lives in vain. Children, women, elderly and disabled only in the new Mosul area. The list of victims goes on and on and the war rages and burns everything and I do not see it ending soon. The people of Mosul do not have their parents”.
Al Jazeera posted a graphic video reporting the strikes, speaking of 137 bodies, mostly women and children.
Iraqi Vice-President Osama al-Nujaifi called for an immediate halt to the bombing of western Mosul neighborhoods. “The intensity of the fighting against the terrorist is not exempting officials and leaders from moral and humanitarian responsibility for the increase in the number of innocent civilian casualties who have been forced to remain in their areas by the terrorist organization,” he said.
A military source told Alquds that overall “3,864 civilians were killed since the start of military operations on the western side of the city of Mosu” with 22,000 more civilians reportedly injured.
In a filmed visit to the scene on March 24th, the head of the Iraq Provincial Council Basma Basim said that she feared as many as 500 locals had in fact died at al Jadida. The Iraqi Observatory also claimed that 500 bodies had so far been recovered. Local MP Ali al-Metwati claimed 600 had died – and that the authorities were covering up the deaths. These high allegations may relate to overall civilian fatalities in the neighbourhood.
On March 26th, Alaraby news reported that “the number of people killed in the US air raid on the new Mosul district on the western coast of the city rose to 511, including 187 children under the age of 15, Iraqi officials said.”
A day later, on March 27th, Alaraby put the death toll at 520. On March 31st, they raised it to 531.
The UN and Amnesty International subsequently released information on the attack.
Victims from New Mosul named so far are. The Amnesty report contained the following account: As the fighting intensified Wa’ad Ahmad al-Tai, his brother Mahmoud and their families sought shelter at their other brother’s two-storey home hoping it would offer them more protection. “We were all huddled in one room at the back of the house, 18 of us, three families. But when the house next door was bombed, it collapsed on us, precisely over the room we were sheltering in. My son Yusef, nine, and my daughter Shahad, three, were killed, together with my brother Mahmoud, his wife Manaya and their nine-year-old son Aws, and my niece Hanan. She was cradling her five-month-old daughter, who survived, thank God,” he said.
Victims from New Mosul named so far are:

The family of the wife of Karim Jassim Al Salim
Hisham Hazem and Issam Hazem of the Sheikh family
The family of Khadr Kaddawi12 people including Yarub Khader Kadawi
Basem al-Muhzam’s family – 11 people
The family of Sinjari – 30 people
Here is Mosul – a local Facebook group – also reported two victims: Firas and Taiba, two young children of Ali Sarhan Al Hayali. They died when a mortar reportedly hit their nearby home, in what may be a separate event.

A relative of the family said the following in a video by Al Jazeera:
“My family were in three houses, 26 persons, I was always in touch with them before the bombardment. On Thursday morning, my brother sent me a message which reads “ Wafa’a, we cannot call due to the heavy bombardment” my heart was feeling like I am not going to see my family again. Their neighbor, Saker, was the only one who survived (…)”

It was around 4pm, and I was outside the house, just checking around the area. I didn’t hear the sound of the airplane, but both buildings were destroyed, so it must have been an airstrike [because of the extent of the damage]. 11 civilians were killed from the families staying in the two houses – one of the families was “Riyan”. Mostly those killed were children. I saw the bodies in the rubble myself, and I tried to help dig them out.”

March 20th 2017: (I443a) حي التنك  Al Tanak, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Amnesty International field researchers reported that 11 civilians died in a likely airstrike on al Tanak. 
The following account was published: “Amnesty International interviewed witnesses about an explosion in al-Tenak neighbourhood on 20 March which they attributed to an air strike. The explosion caused two houses to collapse just off Street 20, killing 11 civilians. Witnesses told Amnesty International that the target was an IS flatbed truck with a mounted machine-gun, which had been parked outside the houses that were struck. It had driven off and moved to another area at least 40 minutes before the attack. One of the witnesses, a local resident called “Imad”, went to the scene of the explosion.
He told Amnesty International: “I know the people killed in those houses. They were simple people. They were working in construction. A painter decorator was killed in one house with his three children and his grandmother. In the other house a carpenter was killed along with his 30-year-old wife and their four children. All the children killed were between three and eight years old.”
This was not the only strike in the area targeting the IS vehicle, according to people displaced from the area. The vehicle had been moving around the neighbourhood for around 20 days during the period between 5 and 30 March 2017. Pro-government forces kept trying to hit it as it moved around, carrying out at least seven strikes on the neighbourhood and killing many more civilians – men, women and children. They told Amnesty International that pro-government forces did not succeed in hitting the truck.
Amnesty International was not able to verify whether the delivery system used in this series of attacks was a warplane or whether the same type of weapon was used in each attack.89 Whatever the weapons used in this case, it appears to be part of a pattern of attacks by pro-government forces using explosive weapons with wide area effects to try to strike highly mobile targets in densely populated areas of west Mosul. Such reckless tactics repeatedly claimed civilian lives and destroyed homes and civilian infrastructure. Based upon the information available, this attack appears to have been indiscriminate.”
A further unpublished Amnesty field report shared with Airwars states the following: “On 19 or 20 March, two houses were targeted in Hai Tenek / Nahwaran, 150 meters west of the Othman Bin Afan Mosque. It was around 4pm, and I was outside the house, just checking around the area. I didn’t hear the sound of the airplane, but both buildings were destroyed, so it must have been an airstrike [because of the extent of the damage]. 11 civilians were killed from the families staying in the two houses – one of the families was “Riyan”.

March 20th – 21st 2017: المنصورة Al Mansoura, Raqqa governorate, Syria
Summary: In a major casualty incident at least 40 civilians died (and as many as 420 according to some claims) with dozens more injured in an alleged Coalition airstrike on the al Badiya school in Mansoura, which was said to have housed up to 100 displaced families.
Coalition commander Lt General Townsend later denied that the strike had killed civilians, stating prior to the conclusion of the Coalition’s own assessment that: “We had multiple corroborating intelligence sources from various types of intelligence that told us the enemy was using that school. And we observed it. And we saw what we expected to see. We struck it. We saw what we expected to see. Afterwards, we got an allegation that it wasn’t ISIS fighters in there; got a single allegation it wasn’t ISIS fighters in there; it was instead refugees of some sort in the school. Yet, not seeing any corroborating evidence of that. In fact, everything we’ve seen since then suggests that it was the 30 or so ISIS fighters that we expected to be there.”
Local monitors disagreed. In a video Jisr TV said: “Tens of people displaced were in that school and until now we couldn’t reach the school and don’t know what happened to them. Whether they evacuated the school or not is unknown before it was targeted by Coalition warplanes.” Qasioun added that “the Coalition carried out three raids on the school and it’s not clear how many people were killed. The school hosted displaced people from Aleppo.”
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – also pointing towards the Coalition – put the death toll at 33, reporting: “One of the activists of the Syrian Observatory witnessed 33 bodies being pulled out of the rubble of the school which was destroyed by the Coalition’s warplanes, before members of the Islamic State came and kept people away. Additionally, two people were pulled out alive…Activists at the Observatory were unable to count the number of children and women among the 33 bodies because they were covered while they were pulled out.” Step news agency said that the number of deaths had risen to “more than 50 following Coalition raids targeting the town at noon today”.
The majority of sources stressed that most of the victims were women and children. Smart News was the only outlet providing specific figures, reporting a death toll of seven children and nine women. Smart went on to say that “a
ccording to another local source, the Islamic State organization demanded that civilians in the western and southern parts of al-Raqqa evacuate their schools and medical centers because they were being targeted by the coalition ‘for the possibility of being headquarters of the organization.'”
Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently meanwhile reported that the “the international coalition dropped leaflets on Al Mansoura and the surrounding villages warning residents to leae their homes after 9pm”.

There were some claims of much higher casualties. According to Raqqa Post the death toll may have been as high as 100: “The school hosted more than 50 families from Maskanah, Homs and other places and there are reports, which are not yet confirmed, that over 100 were killed and many more were wounded. Rescue operations are still taking place.” Baladi put the number killed still higher at 200 civilians – “mostly women and children” – with dozens more injured, adding that the school was completely destroyed. Al Natek also put the number killed at 200.
Q_Alenzy said that the school held 300 displaced people, of which 50 men were outside the building at the time of the attack. The source said it hadn’t yet managed to document the total number of deaths, though it reported that three families had died. According to Euphrates Post, the school was hosting even more refugees, up to “500 displaced women and children”.
A report by Syria News Desk did not refer to the al Badiya school specifically, but alleged that there had been “four raids on two schools inhabited by displaced people from eastern Aleppo. Two houses near the school were hit.” Additionally, “the media activist Mohammed Osman, quoting civilian sources from inside Mansoura, told the Syrian News Agency that the search for missing persons was still ongoing, especially as the raids caused the complete collapse of the two buildings, extensive destruction to the surrounding houses and the combustion of cars and motorcycles”.
As more reports came in, the claimed death toll continued to rise, with one local Mansoura group alleging that it had reached 275 – and specifically blaming “American warplanes”. Mansoura in its Peoples’ Eyes claimed an even higher figure: “420 martyrs with people still looking for survivors”.

A subsequent report by Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently said that “the initial death toll for the massacre at Al Badiya school in Al Mansoura committed by the international coalition at dawn yesterday is 183. The bodies are still being pulled out and the number is expected to rise as there was 105 families present at the school.”
