 governorate, Syria
Summary: Between 13 and 16 civilians died and four were injured in an “unexplained” explosion in the village of Oweijal, local media said – though it was unclear whether the Coalition, the Assad regime or Russia were to blame.
According to the Smart News Agency, “t
he head of the Civil Defense in the western Aleppo countryside, Mohamed Halaq, said that the blast caused the collapse of a three-storey building on Sunday evening, killing 16 civilians, including nine children and four women, in addition to wounding for more, who rushed to a nearby field hospital.
“Halaq pointed out that they could not determine the cause of the explosion, but that it was likely the result of an international coalition raid or a missile explosion from a previous bombardment of the village.”

However, a subsequent report by Smart pointed towards the Assad regime and Russia, saying that “the Civil Defense thinks the explosion could have resulted from the remnants of previous raids by the regime and Russia.”
Radio Allkul blamed a regime surface to surface missile citing Abu al-Leith, the director of the local Civil Defense. Shaam News Network and Baladi also attributed the event to the regime.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights added that “information about the reasons of the explosion was conflicted as to whether it was caused by the explosion of an ammunition dump, or by shelling by regime forces using what was believed to be a ground-to-ground missile.”

The kids were in the front yard. I didn’t see it, but I heard the explosion. Two cars caught fire. Even our food was full of shrapnel. The sides of the house fell, and the outside wall to the courtyard. The mortar fell outside, in the courtyard. There was one IS fighter standing outside the house, but I don’t even think he was the target – it was a random strike.

The following were injured:
XXXX, 8 years old – shrapnel all over body
XXXX, 8 years old – shrapnel in both legs
XXXX, 4 years old – shrapnel in right leg
[I saw all of the injuries – the kids were in the tent.]

Summary: One woman was badly injured in an airstrike on her home – and was then caught up in further airstrikes as she receieved treatment in an ISIS hospital, it was reported.
Amnesty International provided the following field report to Airwars citing an eyewitness: “
A hit from a ‘Khanzira’- she described this as being an ‘F52’ – went over their house and hit the neighbors next door. 14 people were killed. She did not go out to investigate because it is dangerous as most residents know it is never one hit at a time. “We know they want to destroy Daesh but this is not how it should be. To destroy a house and kill an entire family for one person. Is this the work of humans? If they want to liberate families, don’t use airstrikes. It’s these random airstrikes that kill people. In Mosul we say Jedida is the Kobani the 2nd. It’s all gone.”

Airstrikes from the Khanzira continued on the Sina3a area in front of their house. The front of the house was hit when she was in the courtyard sitting down. It had also hit the small kiosk-type sotarge in front of their house where her sons kept metal scraps and spare parts they sold (in the sina3a). The front walls of the courtyard fell in and XX turned to her children to help “I tried to get up but my left leg was dangling under me. I looked down and saw it covered in blood. The children started screaming, but they couldn’t take me anywhere.” The wound was held with towels at home until her son went out and got the attention of one of the IS fighters.
She was taken to the al-Limhouri hospital’s emergency wing by IS fighters in their car. Her husband and son accompanied her. She was in the hospital for 5 hours, being given first aid and prepared for operation to remove a piece of metal (infilaq) roughly 10 cm long from her lower left leg. Before entering the operation, airstrikes begun on the hospital and in the room she was in, the roof fell in. she was moved to the corridor with the rest of the patients. “They blared out on speaker and people rushing in and out that the hospital needs to be emptied. I couldn’t move so they kept me in the corridor with other patients.” Her husband was with her. “the strikes carried on for 3 hours and sometime there were mortars. Then they [IS] made us clear the hospital. My husband took me home in a KIA (open back small truck for transferring goods). Every meter we crossed was met with airstrikes and mortarts. I thought we’d never make it home but god was watching us.”

Amnesty International provided the following field report to Airwars citing an eyewitness: “
On 2 May, in the early morning, there was a big attack on my street. The attack hit a house that was seven houses away from us. As a car bomb moved down the street, the tank targeted the car bomb, and then the ‘elephant bomb’ targeted the house. I don’t know how many people were killed, but we could hear the screams from the house. They were crying out “they killed our family”, “they killed my mother.”

Later, around 9 or 10am, there was an airstrike on our street. Seven houses were destroyed as a result. I didn’t see the attack, but as we were fleeing the next day, we saw all of the houses destroyed. That attack shock the ground. It felt like there was an earthquake. We could feel the whole earth move. I think it was a “bareena” missile – these go very deep – 3 meters into the ground. At least 23 people were killed from this attack, and one fighter. Most of the 23 were women and children. There were only two men among those killed. I didn’t see the bodies myself, but these are our neighbours, so we know who was killed. Only 13 survived who were living in those houses.”

Summary: One civilian was injured in a mortar strikie by an unknown party on al Hermat in West Mosul, according to an eyewitness.
Amnesty International provided the following field report to Airwars citing an eyewitness: “
At the time of the explosions and the bombings, the windows would shatter, and shrapnel would fly everywhere. Because of this, all of my family was staying under the stairway. At 2.30pm on 3 May, I crept out to take a peak out the window, to see what was going on, and just as I was going back to them, the mortar exploded in the street outside our house. I was so afraid when I heard the sound of it. Out of all of the family, I was the one who got to really experience the mortar – only I was injured. I got a piece of shrapnel in my side.”

May 4th 2017: (I525)  Between Street 30 and Al Rahman mosque, Al Msherfa neighbourhood, NW Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Local press sources reported that eleven civilians – all from the same family – died after a Coalition airstrike hit their house in North-West Mosul. Amnesty later revealed the dead were from two separate named families.
According to Yaqein Agency,
“International Coalition aircraft launched raids on a residential area on the right side, in the North-West of Mosul, killing 11 civilians from a single family,” said a well-informed press source. “The shelling also destroyed the house where the family was located and damaged a number of neighboring houses,” sources had told the news agency.
Al Jazeera also said that the Coalition, at the start of the attack, had “carried out a series of raids
on neighborhoods north-west of Mosul, in support of the attacking forces” and reported the same death toll.
In an apparent match, Amnesty later noted ther following for Al Msherfa: “
Amnesty International interviewed two witnesses to an attack in al-Msherfa on 4 May. At around 4pm they heard an explosion they described as “a dull thumping sound” amid shelling and other explosions. They were unable to go directly to the scene of the explosion, as IS was attempting to fight off the advance by pro-government forces. Only once the fighting died down at around 7pm were they able to go to the scene. The house that had been hit was around 30m from the witnesses’ house, between Street 30 and the al-Rahman mosque.

One of the witnesses described the scene as follows: “I went with my dad. The house had been flattened. There had been two families in the house: a total of 14 people. We pulled three survivors out of the rubble and two dead people. The father of one of the families was Dalal. He was a 50 to 55-year-old electrician and was married to Adala.
“Their 13-year-old son, Ishaq, was killed and so was his 15-year-old son, Hashem. Adala survived and so did Dalal and Rihab, their 16-year-old daughter. We pulled Dalal and Adala out of the rubble. When the Iraqi forces came they managed to pull Rihab out. I think they are in an Erbil hospital.
“I didn’t know the other family in the house so well but the father was called Mohamed. He was between 30 and 35 years of age and worked as a builder. He was killed, along with his wife and six of their seven children. The only one that survived was 10-year-old Waleed. One of the bodies that we pulled out was Shahed, Mohamed’s 14-year-old daughter.”
According to witnesses there were usually IS fighters in the area near the house that was destroyed. The witnesses had not been outside after the fighting intensified but there were usually four or five groups of two or more IS fighters in the neighbourhood. They were never in one place; they moved around the neighbourhood carrying guns and mortars. Witnesses do not believe that the attack killed any IS fighters; nine [Tareq note: this should read 10] of the 14 civilians in the house were killed. Whatever weapons system was used, this incident demonstrates the deadly toll of the use of explosive weapons with wide area effects in densely populated west Mosul.96 Although Amnesty International was unable to establish the exact target for this attack, the information available suggests that no legitimate target was struck. This attack appears to have been indiscriminate or a direct attack on a civilian object.”

May 4th 2017: (I526) تموز 17 July 17th neighbourhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Residents and local media sources said that Iraqi or Coalition airstrikes and shelling by Iraqi forces hit Al Walaa school, in the 17 July neighbourhood in West Mosul. This reportedly led to the death of up to 81 civilians – of whom 18 were children – and left 86 civilians injured. The school was said to be used as a shelter by displaced families who had fled from Old Mosul to the 17 July neighbourhood.
The local Facebook group “I am Mosul” posted a series of very graphic photos of dead and wounded children and huge destruction. The aftermath of this major incident was also shared in a Video by Hassan Dally, a local resident.
Yaqein spoke of more than fifty dead and over sixty wounded, and said that dozens were under the rubble. A doctor had stated the same num
bers to Alaraby news: “I do not know the exact number, but they are more than 50 dead and about 60 wounded.” In a later interview, Doctor Mazen Abu Dhar told the news channel that “the current figure [for North West Mosul] is 130 civilians dead in less than a day. We do not know how many people are still under the rubble” and described the situation in Mosul as “a plan to burn the city.” Alaraby put the death toll at 69 for the Al Walaa incident.
Arar news
reported that “About 20 families were holed up inside the Al-Walaa school in the neighborhood of July 17. They were subjected to heavy shelling and rockets from the Iraqi militia and Coalition forces. No one came out of school. The children’s flesh was mixed with stones … 68 dead and more than 47 wounded, mostly children and women.”
An officer of the
Federal Police Forces – who wanted to remain anonymous – had also reported the incident to Anatolia press, said Emad Al Moselly on Facebook. He said that “the shelling killed 34 men, 29 women and 18 children.”
Alrafidain Channel posted a statement written by the Muslim Scholars Association, saying that “the massacre of the July 17 neighborhood in West Mosul, which killed and wounded about 200 people, crime of genocide in the ongoing series of crimes against Iraqis” and that “since the start, the battle of Mosul has been taking a dangerous and devastating direction regarding the existence of this city and its people.” The statement also held that “the parties to the conflict in Mosul do not appreciate the lives of innocent people and pay no attention to this aspect.”
The Iraqi Air Force denied responsibility for civilian casualties, saying on its official Facebook page that “the building was not damaged and we received contacts from many citizens. They confirmed that all those who were killed inside this building were ISIL members.”
Mosul Eye, a local Facebook group, however, said: “
the site is the Al-Walaa School in the neighborhood of July 17, homeless families living in fear, hunger and fear of war. Some of them fled their neighbourhood and areas and fortified the school in the hope that the Iraqi forces would approach them to liberate them.” It followed, cynically: “It is very clear that the children who died, especially the child who was mingled with stones, was a military commander for ISIL.”
It later also quoted the Ninawa Observatory for Documentation, which said that “according to international law, the state is responsible for the actions of its employees and those under its authority, which requires an urgent investigation to be opened to the horrific incident” and that “the fight against and elimination of terrorism does not justify violations against civilians, who have been victims of the two sides in the city.”
Amnesty International later interviewed a local resident who provided the following comments: “
“Nine or ten days ago a plane (presumed) hit a school in 17 Tammuz and killed four or five families inside. More than 80 people were killed in the incident. ISIS had forced the people in the school to 17 Tammuz from different areas. They made the boys carry those that couldn’t walk. The families in the school were from all over the west (of Mosul city). They had been there for perhaps a month or two.

17 Tammuz is a 15 minute walk from where we lived. The school was at the end of Hai Qaneeseh, at the beginning of 17 Tammuz. It was close to the women only supermarket. We didn’t go there or see this for ourselves. People in our neighbourhood knew people in 17 Tammuz and they were crying when they heard the news from them. ISIS asked them what they were crying for and they told them.”

May 4th 2017: (I525b) 60th Street, Msherfa neighbourhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: A field investigation by Amnesty International found that a number of civilians were injured or possibly killed in an air or ground attack on the 60th Street area of Msherfa in West Mosul.
The following Amnesty field report citing an eyewitness was shared with Airwars: “
My family and I were staying at my aunt’s house in Msharrafa. We were there, in the house, waiting for liberation. The house had only one main room. It was on 60th street, near the main gas station. The ISF finally came to our neighbourhood on 3 May. When they came, I put my phone around my neck in a small pouch. I did this on purpose – I thought they might hit our house, so I wanted to be ready to call for help.

The house was hit on Thursday, 4 May, at 6pm. [Didn’t know what type of weapon was used or whether it was ground or air.]  I was taking a nap when it hit on bed in the corner of the room, so I did not hear any sound, but it felt like something grabbed me, lifted me up, and then released me.
I did not faint, but I was shocked. I realized that I was on my back, and the roof had fallen in on the house. A window frame was resting on my chest, pinning me to the floor, and my leg was buried in the rubble. Thankfully the phone was also on my chest, very close to my neck, and I could pull it out from the pouch and call for help. I had the number for someone from the ISF and he told the others where I was.
On the second day, I was waiting for them to come, and my leg was still stuck in the rubble. The pressure was too strong, so I pulled it out myself.
I thought I would never make it out, but I didn’t give up on God. I was always asking for God’s help when I was there. I stayed calm, and I was singing versus from the Qaran to stay focused. I was just thinking about my family and hoping that they had survived. They all escaped from the house after the attack, and they assumed I had died.
The army pulled me out of the rubble on Saturday, around 3pm. They put me in a military vehicle, and took me to Baadush. There, an American medical team stabilized my leg. Then they transferred me to xxxx Hospital.
Now, I don’t know whether my two brothers are alive or dead. Some people tell me they are on the eastern side in the hospital, others say they are in the rubble. My mother is in the burn ward in this hospital, and my father is in the neurological section. My aunt, her husband, and her daughter survived the attack, and hopefully my two brothers are ok. My kneecap is broken, and I have many fractures in my leg.”

May 5th 2017: (I528a) Al Hermat neighborhood, West Mosul, Nineveh province, Iraq
Summary: Heavy shelling of Hermat in West Mosul led to the deaths of five families, according to locals living in the street who were interviewd by Amnesty International.
The following unpublished field report was shared with Airwars: “The bombing was random. There were airstrikes, helicopter strikes, artillery and rockets. There were 100s of strikes each day. (During the four or five days of shelling) we didn’t sleep at all.

I know of a house with five families inside that collapsed when hit by a bomb. It was just a one storey building. That happened on Friday (5 May). I don’t know what time of day it was as we were all hiding from the bombs ourselves at the time. We heard about it from our neighbour. Those five families had been hiding, just as we were doing.
They (the five families) were my neighbours. I knew them all. There were five brothers with their wives and children; their entire families. There were maybe 15 children in the house. The brother that I knew best was called Amr. The mother of the five brothers and grandmother of all the children was there as well. He name was Najood. They all died.
I wasn’t there at the time but I know the layout of the neighbour as my house is in the same neighbourhood and these people were my neighbours. There were four ISIS “barracks” near the house that was bombed. The barracks were just homes that ISIS had taken over from local people. The closest ISIS barracks was around 200 metres southwest of the house. There was another around 300 metres to the east.”

Our house is one street away from al-Haq Mosque and close to the only health centre in Hermat. The Sadeeq al-Amin primary school is also close. The mortar hit around 1pm. The battle had gone on from 8am. Three of my neighbours were killed, and they just buried the dead in their yard. It hit the roof, and we heard the “whiiiiish” and then the explosion. There was shrapnel and stones falling on our heads, and the doors and windows of our house was ripped off. There was so much damage – parts of our house turned to rubble. At least three women were injured – we could hear them crying, “Please, come and rescue us.”  And we heard later that at least three were killed.There were huge attacks behind us, next to us, and all around us, so it’s hard to remember all the details of just one attack.”

May 15th 2017: (S723) البوكمال Abu Kamal, Deir Ezzor Syria
Summary:
.In a major casualty incident, up to 73 civilians including 15 children and six women died and up to 120 others were wounded airstrikes on Abu Kamal, according to local media. The majority of the victims were reportedly displaced people.
Conflicting sources blame the US-led Coalition and the Iraqi air force. Additionally, one source attributed the incident  to Russia. The Coalition, however, later denied responsible.
Death counts varied and ranged from 25 civilians upwards. According to Syrialive54 and Omar Madniah, up to 73 non-combatants – many of them woman and children – were killed. These sources blamed Iraqi warplanes, as did Al Jazeera, Qasioun, Deir Ezzor News and Euphrates Post, among other sources.
But according to Moaz Alshami, Step News, Madar Daily, the Syrian Network for Human Rights and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – among others – the Coalition was responsible. Madar Daily put the death toll at 72 with up to 120 more injured.
Syria News Desk said that the event was “believed to be by the International coalition and the Iraqi Air Force”, adding that “at least eight members of the organization [IS] were killed in the attack near the Rahman Mosque in the center”.
Ahmed Zahlan was alone in claiming that the strike was Russia. He put the death toll at 66. Comments on his tweet, however, challenged this and wondered why he was blaming Moscow.

Sources reported that multiple locations in Abu Kamal were hit, including homes near al Hajana barracks, al Rahman mosque and surrounding area, Post Office Street, Al Malaki restaurant and Al-Rusafa Association.
According to the Step News Agency 15 civilian homes were destroyed, while Euphrates Post said that “warplanes launched a phantom raid during the funerals of several of the victims in Abu Kamal.”
Both Euphrates Post and Syria-mirror published reports in which the Coalition denied responsibility.
Syria-mirror said: “According to US military spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon, coalition aircraft did not hit the town on Sunday and Monday, but only targeted oil production facilities run by the state organization more than 50 kilometers outside the town.”
Dillon said in a statement that the coalition aircraft did not carry out strikes in the time period during which the casualties occurred alleged, stressing the implementation of strikes on Boukmal on those two days, without mentioning the names of the countries that carried out the raids.”
Euphrates Post added that the Syrian regime also denied any link to the bombing, adding this “reinforced the theory that Iraqi forces had targeted the city following Iraq announcing that it would target Syrian territory in which IS was present – and that the Coalition is aware of the identity of any warplanes flying over Deir Ezzor.

One of the children was reportedly a baby girl and was pictured by Deir Ezzor 24.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reportjued that three individual strikes took place, which took place at 2am and 5am.
According to Deir Ezzor 24, the first two strikes hit Al Hammad Hospital Street and the third hit Al Arba’een Street. It also reported that five civilians, including two women, were injured in the second strike and that eight civilians were injured in the third strike – making up the total of 13 wounded.
