(Worthy News) - A US-led coalition of warplanes conducted an airstrike against an Islamic State stronghold in Iraq on Tuesday, dropping 40 tons of bombs on an island in the Tigris River in order to deny the terror group a safe haven, according to Operation Inherent Resolve.

OIR Spokesman Col. Myles B. Caggins III posted a video of the airstrike to Twitter with the caption: "Here's what it looks like when @USAFCENT #F15 and #F35 jets drop 36,000 Kg of bombs on a Daesh infested island."

US F-15 and F-35 aircraft dropped 80,000 pounds of munitions on Qanus Island, located in the Salah ad Din Province, north of Baghdad, to disrupt ISIS fighters' "ability to hide in the thick vegetation," the coalition said in a statement. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
