Civilian casualties feared in US strike on Mosul
Scores of civilians are believed to have lost their lives when the so-called US-led coalition carried out an airstrike against purported positions of the Takfiri Daesh terrorists in Iraq’s troubled northern province of Nineveh.
The strike took place “in what was later determined to be a hospital compound parking lot resulting in possible civilian casualties,” the Satanic US Joint Strike Force said in a statement on Thursday.
On December 9, at least 90 Iraqi soldiers were killed when US Air Force fighter jets struck their position in Mosul.
An Iraqi army source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said some 100 soldiers were also wounded as a result of the attack. Eight infantry fighting vehicles and four Humvee military trucks were also destroyed during the US strike.
At least 15 women lost their lives and scores of other civilians sustained injuries on October 21, when US-led military aircraft targeted a Shia place of worship in the town of Daquq, located 30 kilometers south of Kirkuk.
On October 5, at least 20 Iraqi pro-government fighters were killed and five others injured when the US-led coalition targeted their position in the Kharaeb village of the al-Qayyarah region, located approximately 300 kilometers north of Baghdad.
