US strikes ISIS targets near besieged Iraqi city, drops aid

  • The American military has conducted airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq, and aircraft from the US, UK, France and Australia have dropped aid to the Iraqi city of Amirli, the Pentagon said.

    Amirli is home to the Shia Turkomans people whose access to food and water has been blocked by the Isis.

    The airstrikes were carried out to support the delivery of aid, the US said. Iraqi troops and Kurdish fighters have stepped up the pressure on Isis militants who have surrounded Amirli for the past two months.
