BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Declassified footage from the targeting cameras of US-led coalition warplanes operating over Iraq during 2017 has been publicly released. The footage shows anti-ISIS coalition aircraft conducting attacks against the terrorist group’s positions and underground bases in the north of the country.
The airstrikes by US-coalition airpower were in support of Iraq forces on the ground who themselves conducted a major and ultimately successful offensive against Islamic State militants throughout the Hawija region over the course of September-October 2017.
Coalition warplanes were particularly fixated on hitting ISIS positions and underground bases throughout the Hamrin Mountains at the time of the Iraqi operation across Hawija.
To this end, the footage available at the end of this article shows anti-ISIS coalition warplanes (mostly likely American) carrying out a heavy carpet bombing of terrorist positions and underground bases throughout the Hamrin range.
