WASHINGTON - US-led forces targeted Islamic State militants in Syria with six air strikes from Monday to Tuesday morning and conducted 22 strikes against the group in Iraq, the US military said.

The Syria strikes were concentrated near Al Hasakah and Kobani, the military said in a statement on Tuesday. They hit tactical units, a checkpoint, vehicles and fighting positions.

In Iraq, coalition forces struck the area around Mosul, hitting a factory as they sought to weaken weapons production, the military said. There were also air strikes near Al Asad, Al Huwayjah, Bayji, Fallujah, Ramadi, Sinjar and Tal Afar.
