"The U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS says it carried out an airstrike on a hospital complex in the Iraqi city of Mosul at the request of Iraq's military. Air Force Col. John L. Dorrian, the spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, told reporters that the coalition did not 'have any reason to believe civilians were harmed.' However, when specifically asked whether there were patients at the city's main hospital, Dorrian said that was 'very difficult to ascertain with full and total fidelity.' A review of the intelligence that led to the decision is underway, he said." (12/08/16)
