The US-led coalition against Daesh has carried out massive airstrikes in the operation to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul from the terror group, the US presidential envoy to the coalition, Brett McGurk, said on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — McGurk was traveling to Erbil to meet with US, Iraqi and Kurdish officials coordinating the Mosul campaign.

"Massive coalition airstrikes today on Mosul fronts," McGurk said in a Twitter post. "Also supporting the Peshmerga and people of Kirkuk [to] wipe out infiltrating Daesh cells."
