A US-Led Coalition

According to a senior Defense Department official, at least 250 ISIS militants were killed in series airstrikes conducted by U.S. and Iraqi airstrikes this Wednesday. He said that they’re “still assessing the strikes and gathering details,” but the number of fighters killed is “consistent with our early assessments.”

The spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, Col. Chris Garver said that over the last two days they had targeted two large vehicle convoys that were fleeing the western cities in Iraq;Fallujah and Ramadi. “When strikes from both Iraqi and coalition air hit the convoy, the Da’esh fighters abandoned their vehicles and fled on foot…We estimate coalition strikes destroyed approximately 120 Da’esh vehicles,” he said. “Again, we know the Iraqi security forces destroyed more.”
