US-led coalition carries out air strike on militant facility near Mosul

The United States Department of Defense released video on Monday purporting to show the destruction from an air strike on a militant facility near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
The ministry released a cockpit video showing the strike, which it said hit an Islamic State repeater tower on October 16.
The Iraqi army and the Kurdish Peshmerga forces began moving in the direction of Mosul at dawn on October 17 under air cover from the US-led anti-Islamic State coalition, after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of the offensive on Mosul, two years after Iraq's second-largest city fell to the militants.
