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 US military said the aerial attack was initially thought to have struck a van carrying Daesh militants near the militant-held city of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers north of the capital Baghdad, on Thursday.

The strike took place “in what was later determined to be a hospital compound parking lot resulting in possible civilian casualties,” the Combined Joint Strike Force said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement asserted that Daesh members had been detected firing an anti-tank gun "before loading the weapon in the van and driving off."

It stated that the fatal attack would be “fully investigated and the findings released in a timely and transparent manner.”

On December 9, at least 90 Iraqi soldiers we
re killed when US Air Force fighter jets struck their position in Mosul.
