The Anti-ISIS Coalition launched its second round of airstrikes today in Iraq, attacking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) positions in the Al-Anbar Province located in west Iraq. According to the French Government, an ISIS logistics depot was destroyed during the French Air Force’s air raids; however, its location was not revealed. A ground source in Iraq confirmed that the French Air Force has launched numerous airstrikes over the course of the week, targeting ISIS in west Iraq.

The U.S. Air Force led the first airstrikes in Iraq last weekend, destroying ISIS dens near the Haditha Dam and attacking convoys in the Nineveh Province. The Anti-ISIS Coalition is expected to intensify their attacks in the next few days, while the Iraqi Army continues its imperative siege of Tikrit. Last week, the Iraqi Armed Forces were able to secure the area around Tikrit University and the Tikrit National Hospital in conjunction with Iraqi Air Force attacks on ISIS.

16 civilians were killed today in Baghdad by indiscriminate bombs that were detonated by unknown assailants. Over 40 civilians were wounded by the explosions, leaving at least a dozen Iraqis in critical condition.
