At least 10 ISIS killed in US-led airstrikes

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – US-led coalition forces launched air raids on military bases of the Islamic State group (ISIS) inside Shingal and Baaj, killing at least 10 militants, Rudaw correspondent Hevidar Ahmed reported on Tuesday.

“The US coalition airstrikes conducted five intensified attacks on ISIS strongholds in Shingal,” he said.

“US warplanes carried out airstrikes on ISIS camps in Baaj. The attack resulted in the death of 10 members of the Islamic State organization,” Ahmed added.

About a month ago, Kurdish forces reportedly repulsed an ISIS assault in Shingal.

ISIS forces overran the Shingal district on August 3, 2014, forcing thousands of Yezidi Kurds to flee to the mountains. Hundreds of Yezidis were killed and thousands more taken into captivity, mostly women and young girls.

ISIS bases in the disputed Shingal have been frequently bombarded by coalition airstrikes in the last few months.

Shingal is a town in the Shingal district of Mosul province, near Mount Shingal. Its population in 2013 was estimated at 88,023. The town is mainly inhabited by Yezidis and other minorities.

Thank You Centcom, but I think Russia is outshining you. Russian Air Force struck over 270 terrorist targets in Syria in 2 days. Many of the strikes were on ISIS, and many of the other strikes were at fanatics such as Al Qaeda. Also, Russian Air Force air transported Assyrian (a Christian ethnic group in Syria) militia fighters to the Christian town of Sadad to fight off an ISIS assualt. US should also do that for Kurds and ethno-religious minority groups fighting for survival.

Turn Raqqa to the stone age and then ISIS will be gone to the dust of the history

Correction to my previous comment, Russian Air Force struck 237 targets in Syria, not 270. Also, not sure if ALL targets were terrorists, but know many were aimed at ISIS and Al Qaeda.

The US are Israel's puppets, all of Obama's closest men are Zionist Jews. Israel don't want Isis defeated because then more attention will be shifted to them and the atrocities they are committing against the Palestinian people. They are worse than the Nazi's.
