WASHINGTON - US-led coalition forces conducted 18 air strikes against Islamic State in Iraq and 10 in Syria on Wednesday, the US military said.

The strikes in Iraq targeted eight cities including Falluja, Haditha, Mosul, Sinjar and Makhmur, destroying buildings, vehicles, weapons and tactical units, the task force in charge of the strikes said in a statement Thursday.

The task force said the Syria strikes included six near Hasaka, the northeastern city stormed last week by Islamic State fighters who drove out thousands of civilians. The Syrian army said it recaptured the residential area on Monday.

Other northern cities targeted in Syria included Kobani and Tal Abyad, the statement said.
