Islamic State hit with 19 air strikes by U.S., allies: statement
The United States and its allies staged 19 strikes on Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria in a 24-hour period ending Saturday, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a corrected statement that was released on Sunday. Three of the strikes were in Syria and hit land features, denying the Islamic State "tactical advantage," the military said. In Iraq, 16 air strikes near Mosul, Ramadi, Bayji, Sinjar, Tal Afar and Fallujah hit units, buildings and fighting positions, the statement said.
