US military forces continued to use fighter jets to conduct airstrikes against Islamic State extremists near Mosul Dam, according to the Pentagon.
The strikes are said to have destroyed three ISIL armed vehicles, an ISIL vehicle-mounted anti-aircraft artillery gun, and an ISIL checkpoint. In a statement, a Pentagon spokesperson said:
These strikes were conducted under authority to support Iraqi security forces and Kurdish defense forces as they work together to combat ISIL, as well as to protect critical infrastructure, US personnel and facilities, and support humanitarian efforts there.
