Iraqi and US-led airstrikes decimated 2 ISIS convoys fleeing FallujahOn Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, US and Iraqi aircraft carried out two devastating air attacks against ISIS convoys in Iraq, according to Col. Chris Garver, the spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve.
Garver tweeted on Thursday that coalition forces decimated 120 ISIS vehicles and three vehicle-borne IEDs, and that the Iraqis destroyed another 55 vehicles in strikes that claimed the lives of at least 250 ISIS militants. The militants were fleeing Fallujah, which coalition and Iraqi forces recently liberated from the terror group.
If confirmed, these would be the single most successful strikes yet recorded in the air campaign against ISIS, Reuters reports.
The Iraqi Ministry of Defense posted video showing their Russian-made Mi-28 helicopter carving up a large convoy of vehicles in the desert, as well as the vehicle's charred remains in the aftermath.
