U.S. military forces continued to attack ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria this week, using a combination of bomber and remotely piloted aircraft to conduct three airstrikes, according to the United States Central Command (USCENTCOM).
Two of the airstrikes were conducted late Monday as part of the operation over Syria and resulted in one damaged ISIS armed vehicle and one destroyed ISIS armed vehicle southwest of Dayr Az Zawr. A third airstrike in Iraq Tuesday destroyed one ISIS armed vehicle northwest of Baghdad.
All aircraft exited the strike areas safely, CENTCOM officials said.
The attacks reportedly were led by F-22 Raptors, a fifth-generation stealth fighter making its combat debut.
The strikes were conducted as part of U.S. President Barack Obama's comprehensive strategy to "degrade and destroy" ISIS.
U.S. Central Command has conducted 194 airstrikes across Iraq against ISIS to date.
Along with partner nations, U.S. Central Command has also conducted 16 airstrikes across Syria against ISIS.
