WASHINGTON - US-led coalition forces targeted Islamic State militants with seven air strikes in Syria and 22 in Iraq on Sunday, the combined joint task force leading the operations said in a statement.

In Syria, five of the strikes were staged near the Turkish border town of Tel Abyad, where Kurdish fighters have cut off a key Islamic State supply route.

Five units of Islamic State fighters, three of the militants' fighting positions and one vehicle there were struck, according to the statement released on Monday. Two other strikes hit near Al Hasaka and Aleppo, it added.
