(Worthy News) – Iraqi forces attempting to liberate Mosul from the Islamic State group cannot claim U.S. Air Force allies failed to soften up targets.
The Oct. 16 offensive by a U.S.-led coalition to recapture Iraq’s second largest city from ISIS started with days of relentless airstrikes. Col. Daniel Manning, the deputy director of the Combined Air Operations Center, said Sunni terrorists were subjected to a thunderstorm of bombs that went off every eight minutes for three days.
“It’s a pretty intense bombing campaign if you think about each of these bombs are precision-guided weapons … so it’s a really high rate to be concentrated over one city over a prolonged period of time,” Col. Daniel Manning told Military.com, the defense website reported Nov. 5. [ Source ]
