On Wednesday, an Iraqi army officer in western Mosul - preferring anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to media - told Anadolu Agency that as many as 43 civilians were believed to have been killed in an attack launched "in error" by a US -led air coalition.
"Finding survivors is very hard because the area is completely destroyed", he told reporters.
Earlier, Iraqi forces managed to liberate the Badush Bridge in western Mosul and a water plant in the area, according to Abdulamir Rashid Yarallah, the commander of the liberation operation for the city. "It is a very big disaster, indeed we can describe it as a disaster", Civil Defence chief Brigadier Mohammed Al-Jawari told reporters.
The Kurdish news agency Rudaw put the death toll at 200 and said at least 130 people were killed by strikes on one residential building in the New Mosul neighbourhood. The Iraqi troops and worldwide coalition forces don't know that civilians are inside, and they fire back.

That's an enormous toll, of course, but is reported from several sources telling largely the same story, including that a single U.S. airstrike against a large building full of civilians in Mosul killed over 130 people, while the other 100 or so were killed in the surrounding area. "The coalition conducted several strikes near Mosul and we will provide this information to our civilian casualty team for further investigation", said Centcom, US Central Command.
He added that in the operation, the Iraqi forces seized explosives, a number of weapons and communications equipment from the terror group, the Arabic-language al-Forat news agency reported.
He also said that almost 40 bodies were retrieved from buildings that collapsed in the air strike.
Human rights groups have expressed concern over the mounting civilian death toll, while USA claims that it only targets Islamic State group wearing thin with residents that continue to suffer the casualities.
