"Near Ar Raqqah, 17 strikes engaged 11 ISIL [Daesh] tactical units; destroyed ten fighting positions, five oil pump jacks, four oil refinement stills, two oil tanker trucks, an oil storage tank, a tunnel system, a VBIED [vehicle borne improvised explosive device] storage facility and a vehicle," the release stated on Friday.
Six additional strikes near Deir ez-Zor in Syria destroyed five oil and gas refinement buildings and a refinement still.
In Iraq, the coalition carried out three airstrikes near the city of Mosul that destroyed Daesh-held buildings, supply caches, mortar systems, a vehicle borne improvised explosive device and damaged 24 supply routes.
The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against the Daesh in Syria and Iraq since 2014. The strikes in Syria are not authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the UN Security Council.
Since October, local Iraqi forces backed by the US-led coalition have been fighting to recapture Mosul from the Daesh. An operation to retake Raqqa was launched in December.
The Daesh is outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries.
