The airstrike was reportedly done during the wee hours of June 3, 2015. The outcome had badly affected the city of Hawija in Iraq. There was no considerable comment from the Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld in this regard however she said that the airstrike was one of the bloodiest attacks aimed at a military target by the international coalition.
