The NGO said another coalition raid targeted a house where a 42-member family was living in Bab Sinjar district in western Mosul on April 15.

The chemical attack on Sunday occurred in a recently-liberated area of Mosul, where the Federal Police and Rapid Response forces are advancing towards the old city which is still roaming with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) jihadists.

Lieutenant-General Raed Chaker, the chief of the militarized federal police, said that his forces had launched a surprise encirclement operation early Sunday in the Old City of western Mosul, where the historic al-Nouri Mosque is located.

The Iraqi government has issued instructions to civilians on how to stay safe as forces continue their assault on the IS-held western side of the city.

Iraqi armed forces have captured parts of Al-Tanak neighborhood in northern Iraq's Mosul city, a police official told Anadolu Agency Thursday. He said the area will be cleared from militants soon.

The militants, who assumed control of hospitals across Mosul and appointed an "Emir of Health", did not allow the morgue workers to conduct autopsies on their victims.

The attack caused only minor wounds, the force said in a statement, without giving more details.

IS fighters captured Mosul in 2014 as they gained wide swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria in battles against government troops.
