Watch US-led airstrikes annihilate an ISIS defensive position

The US military has released a video that showcases the anti-ISIS coalition obliterating an ISIS defensive fighting position near to Fallujah, Iraq. 

The airstrikes were conducted on April 24 and were part of a larger operation by the anti-ISIS coalition on that day. Altogether, on that day, the anti-ISIS coalition conducted 3 strikes in Syria and 11 in Iraq against the militant group. 

US Central Command notes that the airstrikes in Fallujah targeted a wide range of targets. In addition to the defensive position, the strikes also destroyed three ISIS tactical units, an ISIS staging area, three fighting positions, two mortar positions, a bulldozer, a front end loader, and three bed down locations

Other strikes in Syria and Iraq on the same day destroyed supply caches, additional tactical units, and a tunnel system. However, the vast majority of the strikes were directed against ISIS in Iraq, particularly in Fallujah.
