US Air Strikes Destroy 116 Islamic State Fuel Trucks


Paris: US-led air strikes destroyed 116 fuel trucks used by the jihadist organisation in eastern Syria, the Pentagon said on Monday.
In a statement, the Pentagon said the trucks were destroyed in a single strike yesterday near Albu Kamal, an IS-held town in Deir Ezzor province along Syria’s border with Iraq.

IS controls most of the oil-rich Deir Ezzor province and part of the city, but has tried for months to seize all of the provincial capital.

Coalition forces conducted 10 strikes in northern, central, and eastern Syria yesterday, in one of the highest number of raids for the campaign in weeks.

The statement said 13 strikes were carried out in various parts of Iraq on Sunday as well.
