Attack Aircraft Pound ISIL Targets Near Iraq’s Mosul Dam

From a U.S. Central Command News Release

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 11, 2014 – U.S. military forces continued to attack Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorists in Iraq, using attack aircraft to conduct two airstrikes yesterday and today near the Mosul Dam in support of Iraqi security forces.

The strikes destroyed two ISIL machine gun emplacements and an ISIL bunker, U.S. Central Command officials said, and all aircraft exited the strike areas safely.

These strikes were conducted under authority to protect U.S. personnel and facilities, support humanitarian efforts, and support Iraqi forces that are acting in furtherance of these objectives, officials said. Centcom has conducted a total of 156 airstrikes across Iraq.
