I have double checked the information about the air strike that happened around 3:10 am and it was not at Al-Kindy, but at Project 1101 in Al-Kisk neighborhood. Hearing its noise inside Mosul reflects the air strike’s intensity. The news of controlling Beji Oil Refinery is the talk of the people in the streets of Mosul.
What I have witnessed today is very difficult to express in writing. There are lots of fabrications and false news that have been spread by media; however, they are contradicted by the reality on ground. My job as a historian requires unbiased approach which I am going to adhere to and keep my personal opinion to myself. I will only communicate the facts I see.
