In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS alleges that an American coalition airstrike on Tal-Afar City, west of Mosul, has killed and injured civilians, including children. The photo report was released on ISIS terrorist channels on November 20. An accompanying summary reads: "Effects of American bombing and its victims in #TalAfar city." It cannot be confirmed that any of these individuals were injured or killed by an airstrike conducted by the US. ISIS has also been conducting its own bombings in the region. Viewer discretion is advised.
