US military conducts more airstrikes in Iraq

WASHINGTON – The Defense Department said a new round of airstrikes by U.S. fighter jets and unmanned drones has targeted Islamic militants in Iraq.

U.S. Central Command said the strikes destroyed armed vehicles, including one that was firing on Kurdish forces in the approaches to the city of Irbil, and a mortar position.

It was the fourth round of airstrikes against Islamic State forces by the U.S. military since they were authorized by President Barack Obama.
