United States Department of Defense

August 24, 2014 - WASHINGTON, Aug. 24, 2014 – U.S. military forces continued support Iraqi security force operations today, using attack and remotely-piloted aircraft to conduct two airstrikes against terrorists associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

One strike destroyed an ISIL Humvee near the Mosul Dam, and the other strike destroyed an ISIL armed vehicle near Irbil. All aircraft exited the strike area safely.

These strikes were conducted under authority to support Iraqi security force and Kurdish defense force operations, as well as to protect critical infrastructure, U.S. personnel and facilities, and support humanitarian efforts.

Since Aug. 8, U.S. Central Command has conducted a total of 96 airstrikes across Iraq. Of those, 62 have been in support of Iraqi forces near the Mosul Dam.
