French Warplanes Pound IS Hideouts near Tuz Khurmatu

ERBIL — Fighter jets of the French air force carried out multiple airstrikes against the Islamic State (IS) near Tuz Khurmatu, Diyala province, on Wednesday.

Jamal Salih, head of the local administration of Zinan subdistrict of Kifri, told BasNews that the warplanes had heavily pounded several positions used by IS militants as their hideouts.

Salih revealed that the French air force had carried out similar attacks in the past few days against the militants in the area, killing at least five jihadists.

“We are not yet updated about the number of IS casualties during today’s airstrikes,” he added.
