ANBAR — US-led Coalition jets struck an Islamic State (IS) convoy heading towards western Anbar, a security source said on Wednesday.
According to the source, who spoke to Alghad Press on condition of anonymity, the US-led coalition warplanes targeted and hit an IS convoy traveling from Baaj desert to al-Rommana in the town of Qaim, located about 20 kilometers east from the Iraqi-Syrian border.
The source further added that the airstrike hit three trucks, which were left destroyed together with all the IS militants on board killed, IraqiNews reported.
Fighter jets from the Iraqi Air Force and the US-led Coalition continue to regularly target the IS positions in Anbar province, as part of the ongoing efforts to defeat the extremist group in Iraq.
Anbar’s western towns of Annah, Qaim and Rawa are still in control of the IS insurgents since 2014, when the group first emerged in Iraq and captured large swathes of territory.
