WASHINGTON - The United States and its allies hit Islamic State with an air strike in the Syrian city of al-Hasaka on Wednesday, among other targets in Syria and Iraq, the US military said.

In a statement, the Combined Joint Task Force said the air strike in al-Hasaka, a city divided into Syrian government and Kurdish control where Islamic State has been trying to retake the initiative, struck a unit of Islamic State fighters and one of the militant group's vehicles.

Two other strikes in Syria hit near Aleppo and Tel Abyad, according to the statement released on Thursday.
