US-led coalition airstrikes againstthe Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) on January 15 destroyed a command center near Mosul, Iraq.
Taking out ISIS’ organizational posts remains a key part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the name of the Combine Joint Task Force’s mission to eliminate the terrorist group.
Airstrikes on January 11 and January 18 near Mosul targeted two different ISIS’ cash-distribution centres.”Recent airstrikes on Daesh cash distribution sites have denied Daesh millions of dollars that they would have used to finance their operations and pay their fighters,” according to Combined Joint Task Force.
