The US Department of Defense has released video of recent US-led coalition air strikes in Iraq that have hit various ISIS targets.

The air strikes that took place last week are part of a continuing effort to eliminate the grip of Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.

On Thursday (November 12) Kurdish peshmerga forces started clearing parts of the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar and have established positions along an Islamic State supply route between its two main strongholds in Iraq and Syria, the coalition said on Thursday.

Backed by US-led coalition air strikes, the Kurds launched an offensive in the early morning designed to cordon off Sinjar, take control of strategic routes and establish a buffer zone to protect the town from artillery.

A victory in Sinjar could give the Kurds, government forces and Shi'ite militias momentum in efforts to defeat Islamic State, which controls large areas of Iraq and Syria and has affiliates in Libya and Egypt.
