U.S.-Led Coalition Carries Out 133 Airstrikes On ISIS In 10 Days

In the second half of March, the US-led coalition began a major offensive against ISIS in Northern Iraq.

This is a necessary step, since ISIS’ resurgence is fact, and the United States needs urgent justification to remain in the Middle East with a hefty presence.

In an approximately 10-day-period, the US-led coalition carried out 133 on a cave complex that served as a safe haven for terrorists.

This is more than any monthly amount on both Iraq and Syria since 2019.

he offensive, in support of Iraqi ground forces, destroyed 61 hideouts, 24 caves, and eliminated “a number of terrorists,” said Col. Wayne Marotto, spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

Iraqi Ministry of Defense spokesman Yehia Rasool said the mission was aimed at drying up the sources of terrorism. The Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service led the ground effort.

The U.S. government estimates that between 8,000 and 16,000 ISIS fighters remain in Iraq and Syria, with the group operating as a “low-level” insurgency in rural areas, according to a February report by the Defense Department’s Lead Inspector General for Operation Inherent Resolve.

To provide some numbers for comparison, in Syria, Russian warplanes launched 97 airstrikes against ISIS sites in the Badia region over March 20th – 22nd.

Hard to believe since ISIS has been rebranded as a US proxy in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan as well, so who exactly is the “coalition” bombing for the past 21 years since USS Cole was hit in Yemen?

ISIS = Khazar = Kiev junta = Zionist IMF

IMF = Israeli Military Fund

I just hope that they “accidentaly” didn’t hit PMU or SAA unit.

The average person here is not. We have the pathological liars run everything, have all the money and control the government.
When good people do nothing they are guilty also?

133, and not 33?

Lone Ranger

I guess thats called friendly fire…

and 13.3 sorties per day isn’t very many and probably missed by a few 1000 yards on purpose. can’t kill the reason why they remain in iraq.

Just burning through some ordinance as pay back for campaign donations. It’s a goodwill gesture … the real payback is yet to come.

They drop depleted uranium to poison the earth and cause tumors to the local population, they continue their genocide of the Arabs, just move to Iraq to see the effects of the same bombing campaign of the first Gulf War, there are still many children who are born horribly devastated, because the parents have ingested radiation for a very long time, it is called the war of extermination.

Probably explains why Google Earth does not show updated images of Iraq after 2004, especially around Najaf.

Last time they were talking about actively destroying Daeshbags, their results (or lack of) after September 2015 were exposed by high-altitude Russian drone footage of massive lines of oil tanker trucks waiting to ship stolen oil across the border to Turkey.

ISIS? More like Iraqi resistance forces.
