    The US-led coalition against the Daesh conducted 21 airstrikes against the group’s positions in Iraq and Syria on Sunday, destroying numerous targets near the Iraqi city of Mosul, Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve said in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against the Daesh in Syria and Iraq since 2014. However, the strikes in Syria are not authorized by the legitimate government of President Bashar Assad or by the UN Security Council.

    "Near Mosul, 10 strikes engaged five ISIL [Daesh] tactical units; destroyed three mortar systems, three storage containers, two vehicles, two ISIL-held buildings, two VBIEDs, two heavy machine guns, a bulldozer, a communications tower; damaged a fighting position, a command and control node, three tunnels; and suppressed an ISIL tactical unit," the release stated on Monday.

    Additionally, the coalition conducted one airstrike each near the cities of Al Qaim, Hadith and Tal Afair, destroying Daesh tactical units, vehicles, weapons and a repeater tower.

    In Syria, the coalition carried out six airstrikes near the city of Ayn Isa, engaged five Daesh tactical units and destroyed a fighting position, vehicle, mortar system and anti-aircraft weapons system.

    Two additional airstrikes destroyed oil wellheads near Abu Kamal and Deir Ezzor, the release said.

    Daesh is outlawed in the United States, Russia and other countries.
