CENTCOM Reports 15 Strikes Against ISIS Over Past Week

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners continue to strike Daesh targets in designated parts of Iraq and Syria.

Ongoing operations by Iraqi Security Forces and Syrian Democratic Forces, supported by CJTF-OIR efforts, demonstrate that work remains to defeat Daesh. Coalition strikes continue to target Daesh throughout Iraq under the leadership of Iraqi authorities. “All coalition air strikes are carried out with the consent of the Iraqi government,” said Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in a press conference April 1, 2018.

Between April 6 and April 12, coalition military forces conducted 15 strikes consisting of 41 engagements in Syria and Iraq.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. This will prevent the terrorist group’s ability to resurge and resume its intent to threaten and destabilize the international community.

This coalition strike release contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing, or remotely piloted aircraft, rocket propelled artillery and ground-based tactical artillery.
