The United States and its allies have destroyed key targets of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in their latest series of airstrikes against the militant group, the U.S. military said Sunday, according to Reuters news agency.

Three airstrikes “struck an ISIL large tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL building and two ISIL vehicles,” the Combined Joint Task Force leading the air operations said in a statement using another acronym to design ISIS.

In Iraq, air strikes near Tal Afar, Mosul, Bayji, Hit and Sinjar struck strategic units including buildings and a checkpoint, the task force said.

It added that vehicles and a bulldozer were also hit.

On Saturday, the Combined Joint Task Force reported nine strikes in both Syria and Iraq since Friday.
