Nine of the strikes in Iraq were staged near Ramadi, hitting tactical and fighting Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) units, weapons caches and two tunnels, according to a military statement.

The attacks in Syria, near Al Hawl and Ar Raqqah, struck Islamic State tactical units and Islamic State buildings.
