‘US strikes kill dozen Iraqi civilians’

At least a dozen civilians have been killed in two aerial assaults by US military aircraft in the beleaguered northern Iraqi city of Mosul, eyewitness and medical sources say.  

The airstrikes took place in quick succession and within a 10-minute gap at about 3 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) on Monday, leaving a total of about 20 people dead, including at least 12 civilians.

They air raids purportedly targeted the houses of a local Takfiri commander and his son in the July 17 district of western Mosul, which is controlled by Daesh terrorists.

They came only three days after a US airstrike hit the Iraqi army’s 3rd Division 55th Brigade near Fallujah and claimed the lives of at least 10 Iraqi soldiers.

According to Iraq’s Joint Operations Command, the strike happened as army forces backed by fighters from Popular Mobilization Units were closing in on Takfiri terrorists in Anbar Province.

Senior MP Hakim al-Zamili accused Washington of deliberately hindering Baghdad’s military advances in its fight against Daesh militants in Anbar. He also accused the US of dropping aerial packages and providing Daesh terrorists with weapons, saying the “crime” would be taken to court.

The US and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against purported Daesh positions inside Iraq since August 2014. They are also carrying out an aerial campaign in neighboring Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

Most of the parties to the alliance have been among staunch supporters of Takfiri terrorists wreaking havoc in Iraq and operating to topple the Syrian government.

Syrian officials and some Iraqis say the airstrikes have left many civilians dead and destroyed their infrastructure.
