TAMPA, Fla., September 21, 2014 — U.S. fighter aircraft have continued to attack Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorists in Iraq in recent days, U.S. Central Command officials reported today.

Two airstrikes conducted today destroyed an ISIL mortar position northeast of Sinjar and an ISIL semi-tractor trailer carrying munitions southwest of Sinjar, officials said.

In other airstrikes since Sept. 19, U.S. fighters destroyed an ISIL boat ferrying supplies across the Euphrates River and an ISIL fighting position southwest of Baghdad.

In addition, four airstrikes northwest of Haditha destroyed two ISIL armed vehicles, three ISIL checkpoints and two ISIL guard outposts.

All aircraft left the strike areas safely, officials said, adding that Centcom now has conducted a total of 186 airstrikes across Iraq.
