On the campaign trail, President Trump told it like it was….that Obama was doing NOTHING to really stop ISIS. Then…He said he would do much better than Obama.
The U.S. Defense Department has announced officially that the ISIS headquarters in the west of Mosul has been DECIMATED in an air BOMBING RAID!! Terrorists are running for the hills.
From The Washington Examiner:
The five-story Bab Sinjar administration building, which also served as a propaganda facility, was located in the Jumhuri medical community complex, the release from Operation Inherent Resolve said. The U.S.-led coalition carried out the strike in Iraq on Friday.
The air strike was one of three in Mosul on Friday. The other strikes destroyed other Islamic State assets, including four watercraft, three front-end loaders, two shipping containers, a mortar system, an artillery system and a facility to make vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.
While ISIS sustained heavy damaged from U.S.-led forces, Russia has also been pounding the group as well.
The Daily Star reports:
The Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that long-range bombers had fired a series of cruise missiles at ISIS targets around the Syrian city of Raqqa.
The ministry said in a statement that the Tupolev-95 bombers had taken off from Russia and flown over Iran and Iraq to get to Syria where it said they had successfully targeted militant training camps and a command point.
Russia carried out a series of sustained attacks on Raqqa in late 2015, but has since focused its fire power around Aleppo and other rebel-held areas.
Last October, before Trump was President, the offensive was begun. But under Obama, it never took hold and progressed.
The effort to retake Mosul from the Islamic State has been ongoing since last fall, and the Pentagon said recently that the city is now fully surrounded by Iraqi personnel, decreasing the re-supply efforts of the ISIS soldiers.
