Syria: US-led coalition carries out multiple airstrikes against Isis
July 5 , 2015
US-led forces have carried out multiple airstrikes against Islamic State (Isis) targets in Raqa, a Syrian stronghold of the jihadi fighters, reports say.
A spokesperson of the coalition said the “significant” strikes would impair the Islamic State’s “ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq”, adding that these were among the largest such air assaults against the militant group.
The airstrikes had “severely constricted” the Islamic State's “freedom of movement”, the spokesperson added.
