An F-15E Eagle fighter jet carried out the strikes, which killed an estimated five ISIS fighters, Army Col. Myles B. Caggins, a coalition military spokesman, told Stars and Stripes via text message. Iraqi forces were still conducting an assessment of the damage.
Caggins also posted video of the strike in Nineveh province on Twitter, which killed four militants. Recent killing or capture of ISIS leaders has left ‘their lowly terrorists followers dazed & disillusioned’,Caggins tweeted.
Late last month, Syrian forces said that a coalition strike in Syria killed one of the top three leaders of ISIS; about a week after officials in Baghdad said they were holding a senior ISIS member.
