An airstrike by the US-led coalition purportedly fighting Daesh terrorists in Iraq has targeted a funeral ceremony in the Arab country’s city of Mosul, killing eight civilians.

Colonel Ahmed al-Jaboury, with the Nineveh Liberation Operation, said in a statement that the victims were killed as the US-led coalition "mistakenly" hit the mourning ceremony in Shefaa neighborhood in western Mosul on Tuesday.

Separately, the commander of the Nineveh Liberation Operation, Abdul Amir Yarallah, said a group of Daesh terrorists were killed in an Iraqi airstrike on Tuesday.

The air raid targeted the terrorists in Rashidiya area as they were fleeing from eastern Mosul to its west.

Mosul is the last urban area in Iraq that is still controlled by Daesh. Large-scale operations are underway by the Iraqi military from several fronts to liberate the city.
