In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants show dead bodies at Al Salam Hospital in southeast Mosul, possibly after a U.S. military airstrike. It is unclear of the timeline of the report, but ISIS militants had been using Al Salam as a command center to target Iraqi forces with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. An accompanying summary of the photo report reads: "The Course of Battles Southeast of #Mosul - Cleansing the #Salam Hospital." Viewer discretion is advised.
