BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Iraqi Ministry of Defense released footage of the Iraqi Air Force bombing the Islamic State’s positions inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate of Syria on Friday.

According to local activists, the Iraqi Air Force bombed the Islamic State’s positions inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate city of Albukamal, which is located next to Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

The Iraqi Air Force would then launch another airstrike above Albukamal, destroying an Islamic State installation inside the city.

Today’s airstrikes by the Iraqi Air Force in Deir Ezzor marks the first time during this war that they have entered Syrian airspace to attack the terrorist group.
