VIdeo: In Case You Forgot, We’re Still Bombing ISIS In Iraq
The U.S. military has released video of the destruction of an IS truck in the northern city of Irbil.
The US military said the strike was conducted under authority to support Iraqi security forces and Kurdish defence force operations, as well as to protect critical infrastructure, US personnel and facilities, and support humanitarian efforts.
As of Thursday, the military said it had conducted 110 air strikes against IS militants who have stormed across Iraq, taking control of a large swathe of the west and north.
Islamic State extremists responsible for beheading of American journalist James Foley have threatened to kill another American journalist unless the US halts its air strikes against it.
US military operations in Iraq, including air strikes and surveillance flights, have cost about $560 million (£337m) since mid-June, the Pentagon said Friday.[su_center_ad]
