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.

This video DOES NOT show “carpet bombing”! Look up carpet bombing videos from WWII and you will know what carpet bombing is! Also, some videos online claim to be “carpet bombing” but they show only ONE plane dropping a full load of bombs. This is not carpet bombing either. Carpet bombing involves many planes dropping their entire load so that a vast area is devastated.

ISIS was the U.S.’s own tool and place holder. They will only bomb it if they want to switch to other anti-Assad forces to control it.
