Via Political Wire, the Washington Post reports that there are air strikes hitting Mosul, and no one seems to know who is doing the bombing.

Residents of the city, reached by phone, said airstrikes shook the city at least three times Sunday, starting at dawn. It remains unclear what force carried out the airstrikes. The U.S. Defense Department said that it had no knowledge of the airstrikes and that U.S. forces were not involved. An Iraqi government official in Baghdad said he had no information about any airstrikes near Mosul…

The Iraqi military says it carried out a series of airstrikes in recent weeks on areas now controlled by Sunni militants, particularly in the city of Tikrit, former dictator Saddam Hussein’s home town.

There have been no confirmed U.S. drone strikes or Iranian airstrikes in Iraq.

But the United States is currently flying armed and unarmed drones over Iraq, U.S. officials have said.
