MOSUL: In Iraq, thirty-three former members of Iraqi security forces were killed in a coalition raid in western Mosul on Monday.

According to the federal police officer, a coalition warplane mistakenly fired two missiles into a train station, where Daesh held the captives.

Meanwhile, US-backed Iraqi forces today captured Mosul’s al-Hurriya bridge, which leads to the Islamic State-held old city center from the south.
