World Bulletin / News Desk

Three members of the same family were killed late Tuesday when a shell fired by ISIL extremist group struck their home in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul

Army officer Karam al-Naemi said two other people were injured in the attack which occurred in al-Zahraa neighborhood in north-eastern Mosul. 

Meanwhile, U.S.-led coalition warplanes struck a ISIL position in central Mosul, police officer Hadi Shukr said. 

No reports were yet available about casualties. 

Once Iraq’s second largest city in terms of population, Mosul was overrun by ISIL along with large parts of the country’s northern and western regions  in mid-2014.  

Since last month, the Iraqi army, backed by U.S.-led coalition warplanes and local allies on the ground, has been battling to recapture Mosul from the extremist group.
