Iraqi Air Force Stages Massive Bombing of ISIL’s Positions in Eastern Syria


The Iraqi Air Force carried out fresh combat flights over ISIL’s strongholds in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, imposing major losses on the terrorists on Friday, the Iraqi army’s Joint Command said in a statement.

“The Iraqi F-16s struck two sites today, including a headquarter used by leading members of the terrorist group and a warehouse used for storing missiles… in Hajin region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur,” the Joint Command said.

The operation achieved its objective, totally destroying both targets, the statement asserted.

Iraq’s Joint Operation Command announced in a statement earlier this month that the Iraqi fighter jets bombed and destroyed an ISIL command base in Dashisha region in Southern Hasaka.

The statement further said that the air raid was ordered by Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Haydar al-Ebadi and coordinated by Joint Operation Command, adding that Iraqi F16 jets struck ISIL’s base in Southern Hasaka, destroying it completely.

In the meantime, the chairman of the Iraqi Parliaments’ Foreign Affairs Committee underlined growing coordination between the intelligence services of Iraq and Syria is recent months, saying the coordination and cooperation paves the ground for killing or capturing tens of ISIL commanders at joint borders.
