WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US-led coalition against the Daesh launched 14 airstrikes in Syria and Iraq on Sunday, targeting the terrorists’ units and infrastructure, the US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced in a statement.
"In Syria, coalition military forces conducted three strikes using attack and ground-attack aircraft against ISIL [Islamic State] targets," the statement said on Monday. "Additionally in Iraq, Coalition military forces conducted 11 strikes coordinated with and in support of the Government of Iraq using attack, ground-attack, fighter, and remotely piloted aircraft against ISIL targets."
Meanwhile in Iraq, the coalition conducted 11 airstrikes near six Iraqi cities destroying tunnel systems, bed down locations, fighting positions, a front end loader, a recoilless rifle, anti-air artillery pieces and vehicles.
The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been carrying out airstrikes in Syria and Iraq against the Islamic State, which also known as Daesh, since the summer of 2014. However, the coalition has acted in Syria without the approval of the country’s government or an authorization by the UN Security Council.
