Back in March 17، a US-led airstrike in the then Daesh-held city of Mosul killed 105 civilians sheltered in the bottom floors of a structure.

While the majority stay on heavily-fortified bases carrying out logistics or advisory roles, some have found themselves on the front lines. Notwithstanding the two troops killed Sunday, five different USA troops have been slaughtered in Iraq in the battle against IS, incorporating two in the fight to retake the northern city of Mosul.
