In a statement, the Combined Joint Task Force said five of the Iraq strikes hit around Ramadi, destroying weapons, tactical units and fighting positions, as well as targets in nine other Iraqi cities, including Sinjar, Mosul and Tikrit.
In Syria, the statement added, five strikes near al Hasaka took out two Islamic State vehicles and three buildings, wounding an undisclosed number of militants. Three other strikes hit near al Hawl and one near Mar'a.
Bomber, attack, ground-attack, fighter, and remotely piloted aircraft were all used in the operation.

Kurdish forces have launched an offensive to retake the town of Sinjar in Iraq from Islamic State militants, who took control over a year ago and enslaved thousands of its Yazidi residents.
Operation Free Sinjar - which will be backed by US-led airstrikes - aims to cordon off the town, take control of Islamic State supply routes and establish a buffer zone to protect it from artillery, according to a statement from the Kurdish national security council.
Sinjar is of major symbolic and strategic importance, as it sits astride a main highway linking the cities of Mosul and Raqqa - Islamic State strongholds in Iraq and Syria respectively.
