MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has called on Western journalists to be objective in their war news coverage, she said on Saturday in comments on an ‘accidental’ air strike of US warplanes on Iraq’s city of Mosul.
"I wonder what the German Welt or Bild have written about it. Yesterday, the Bild published an essay by Bild’s editor-in-chief on the theme of Syria, in which he called [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov a war criminal. Who will independent German media name today and how will they call them?" Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page.
Earlier Arab media reported that over the past week at least 90 Iraqi soldiers were killed and about 100 more wounded in air strikes the US Air Force delivered by mistake on positions of the government forces near the city of Mosul.
Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, has been controlled by Islamic State for over two years. The ground operation to liberate it began on October 17, uniting government forces, Shia militias and Kurd Peshmerga fighters. The Iraqi Air Force and warplanes of the US-led coalition provide air support.
