A spokesman for the International Alliance, Miles Caggins, revealed on Tuesday that the international coalition had carried out airstrikes in Baiji district, last week, targeting Islamic State hideouts.
The spokesman for the international coalition said that the Royal Air Force continues to carry out daily armed reconnaissance missions over Iraq and eastern Syria as part of the global coalition against ISIS.
