US continues air strikes against IS

US forces continued their attack on Islamic State (IS) militants in northern Iraq with three more air strikes conducted Monday, the army said.

The strikes destroyed three IS trucks and destroyed a mortar position near the Mosul Dam, Xinhua quoted a statement by US Army’s Central Command as saying.

The operation was conducted under authority to protect US personnel and facilities, support humanitarian efforts, and support Iraqi forces that are acting in furtherance of these objectives, the statement said. US Central Command has conducted a total of 123 airstrikes across Iraq. The White House Monday said that its latest round of airstrikes in Iraq are ‘consistent’ with prior military missions the White House has authorised to date in Iraq.
