WASHINGTON - A coalition led by the US military targeted Islamic State militants with 16 air strikes since early Thursday, its Combined Joint Task Force said.

A dozen strikes in Iraq – near Mosul, Falluja and Haditha, among other cities – hit seven units of Islamic State fighters and destroyed two buildings, among other targets, the US-led group said in statement on Friday.

In Syria, four strikes near Dayr az Zawr, Kobani and Tal Hamis hit two groups of fighters as well as several fighting positions, the task force said.
