In a recent investigation by the NRC Handelsblad daily and Dutch public broadcaster NOS revealed that an airstrike by a Dutch F-16 on a car bomb factory in Iraq in 2015 killed at least 70 civilians.

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.

It is to be noted that, as part of the international coalition, the Netherlands started carrying out airstrikes in Iraq against Daesh terrorists in 2014.
