    The US-led coalition against the Daesh terrorist group conducted airstrikes near three Iraqi cities, Hit, Sinjar and Sultan Abdallah, destroyed multiple Daesh assembly areas, a bed down location and a safe house, according to CENTCOM.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US-led coalition against the Daesh terrorist group, also known as Islamic State, did not launch any airstrikes in Syria on Monday while conducted four strikes in Iraq destroying the terrorists’ security headquarters, the US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a press release.

    "In Iraq, Coalition military forces conducted four strikes coordinated with and in support of the Government of Iraq using attack aircraft against ISIL [Islamic State] targets," the release stated on Tuesday.

    The coalition airstrikes near three Iraqi cities, Hit, Sinjar and Sultan Abdallah, destroyed multiple Daesh assembly areas, a bed down location and a safe house, according to CENTCOM.

    The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been carrying out airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq since summer 2014.

    The Islamic State, also known as Daesh, is a terrorist group outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries. The infamous group has seized large areas in Syria and Iraq and declared a caliphate on territories under its control.
