Mosul (IraqiNews.com) The paramilitary troops of Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi have declared being shelled by an unidentified aircraft in west of Mosul.

A statement by Saraya al-Jihad militia said “troops deployed in west of Mosul have been shelled.”

“At 3 AM on Monday, a rocket fired from a fighter jet targeted our troops on the main road linking between Tal Abta and Addaya regions, which lead to Mosul.

The road is a main used for Islamic State supplies in Mosul.
