Meanwhile in Iraq, the coalition carried out 18 airstrikes in and around 10 Iraqi cities targeting supply caches, heavy machine guns, tactical units, mortar positions, bridges, a bunker, a command and control node and assembly areas.
"In Syria, coalition military forces conducted seven strikes using attack, fighter, and remotely piloted aircraft against ISIL [Daesh] targets," the release said on Tuesday. "Additionally in Iraq, Coalition military forces conducted 18 strikes coordinated with and in support of the Government of Iraq using bomber, ground-attack, fighter, and remotely piloted aircraft against ISIL targets."
The latest US-led coalition assessment comes after US President Barack Obama announced on Monday that Washington would send additional 250 US personnel to Syria to help local forces in their fight against Daesh.
Mooreover, last week the Obama administration said it would send 217 troops to Iraq to assist the local forces in retaking Daesh's stronghold of Mosul.
