Nearly 40 ISIS vehicles have been completely destroyed near Amiriyat al-Fallujah (east of Anbar province) by Iraqi airstrikes, according to sources.

An Iraqi military source said the convoy managed to break through the security cordon imposed around the recently-liberated city of Fallujah and escaped to an open desert area.

“The Joint Special Operation Commanded ordered the Iraqi air force to destroy the convoy in spite of the bad weather after the US-led coalition refused to engage in the aerial campaign under the pretext that some jihadists was accompanied by their families”, a military source clarified.

The airstrikes killed at least 250 jihadists with their vehicles; some are loaded with weapons and ammunition and equipped with machine guns.

A combat footage released by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense shows parts of the operation.

Located nearly 60 m to the west of Baghdad, the Iraqi Security Forces, backed by Popular Mobilization Forces, declared Fallujah fully liberated after nearly 2 years of being under ISIS control.

IMO most of these vehicles were abandoned already after they ran out of fuel. Just saying…

“after the US-led coalition refused to engage in the aerial campaign under the pretext that some jihadists was accompanied by their families”
I bet this intel was from al-Jubeir 🙂
Anyway, if the shithadists think they can use their families as human shields, they’re likely to have serious drawbacks with darwinists who may consider that they’ve contaminated their families with their rabid…

The vehicles were clustered together. It might have been a civilian convoy. Real military do not cluster together.
