Qamishli, Syria – The Joint Command of the U.S.-led international coalition forces announced Sunday that their warplanes carried out nine air strikes in Iraq and Syria against vital targets of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS).
The joint Command said in a statement that two airstrikes, in which two U.S. drones were involved, bombed an IS tactical unit and destroyed two military vehicles in Hasakah province, northeast Syria.
In Iraq, the coalition used warplanes and drones to bomb targets near areas of al-Qaim, Asad, Kirkuk and Mosul, and was able to destroy several IS tactical units, boats and a storage facility.
Speaking to ARA News, civil rights activist Mawqif Ajaj from Hasakah said that intense sorties were carried out by the international coalition’s warplanes on Sunday over Hasakah and its countryside, where they targeted IS locations in the southern and western countryside of the city.
Noteworthy, the coalition’s anti-IS raids inside Syrian territory has escalated in the last few weeks in conjunction with the battles waged by the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) against the IS jihadists in more than one front in the countryside of the province of Hasakah.
