station's correspondent said seven houses were destroyed in an
unidentified district and that many inhabitants were fleeing.
They were enraged because no military targets were in the
vicinity, it was claimed.
One resident told the Arab station that "at least 50 children"
were hit, along with an "incalculable" number of women.
Footage from the area showed destroyed houses and trucks filled
with bags and baggage leaving the scene.
Mosul, a city of some 300,000 in a majority Kurdish region, has
been bombarded several times by the coalition fighting to topple
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, according to al-Jazeera.
However, the report said the bombing raid yesterday afternoon
(AEDT) had caused the first heavy casualties.
