ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The US-led coalition hammered Islamic State (ISIS) bases on the Makhmour fronts by air late Thursday, a day after Peshmerga forces were involved in heavy clashes with the militants on multiple fronts, a Kurdish military official told Rudaw.

“Coalition warplanes heavily bombarded the Daesh (ISIS) bases in the villages of Sultan Abdullah, Matantar and Kudila in the west, east and south of Makhmour,” said the official, who added that an unspecified number of militants were killed or wounded. 

He said that the air raids began at 5:30 pm. 

Peshmerga forces repelled a series of intense ISIS assaults on Wednesday, and some on Thursday, on multiple fronts that included the Khazar front near Erbil and Mosul’s Bashik military camp.

Kurdish forces killed at least 70 militants in Wednesday’s fighting, the Kurdistan Region Security Council (KRSC) said. It also reported Peshmerga causalities estimated at six dead.
