Iraqi jets bombed ISIS targets inside the country of Syria for the first time Friday according to a statement from their prime minister. These airstrikes came as the Iraqi Army continues their operation to take back the city Mosul from the Islamic State. The Iraqi Prime Minister said they will attack ISIS militants ‘everywhere’.

Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the airstrikes in a statement, saying the air force hit towns of Boukamal and Husseibah across the border and came in response to recent bombings in Baghdad claimed by IS and linked to the militants’ operations in Syria.

An Iraqi air force commander said the airstrikes against IS Syria were carried out with F-16 warplanes at dawn and “were successful.” – Military.com
