WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US-led coalition against Daesh destroyed the terror group’s finance storage center near the Iraqi city of Mosul on Thursday in an airstrike, the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve said in a press release.
"Near Mosul, three strikes struck an ISIL [Daesh] tactical unit, an ISIL finance storage center and an ISIL finance distribution center, and destroyed three ISIL fighting positions," the release stated on Friday.
In addition, the strikes near Mosul destroyed two Daesh vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices, two mortar systems, four assembly areas and a tunnel, while denying the terrorists access to terrain, according to the Task Force.
Three other airstrikes in Iraq took place near Albu Hayat, Sinjar and Sultan Abdallah, and destroyed Daesh communication towers, tactical units and fighting positions, the release said.
The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been conducting anti-Daesh airstrikes in Syria and Iraq since 2014. The airstrikes in Syria, however, are not authorized by the legitimate government of President Bashar Assad or by the UN Security Council.
Daesh is outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries.
