The United States and its allies conducted 22 air strikes against Islamic State forces in Iraq on Friday and Saturday, the U.S. Central Command said.

According to RushHourDaily, U.S. warplanes also destroyed an Islamic State artillery piece near Kobani, Syria, officials said Saturday.

The 22 strikes in Iraq included attacks in the frequently targeted areas near the vital Mosul dam; the city of Fallujah and the northern city of Bayji: home of an oil refinery.

According to The Guardian, US warplanes also destroyed an Isis artillery piece near the besieged town of Kobani in Syria, officials said. The bomber, fighter and remotely piloted aircraft used in the air strikes all returned safely, U.S. officials said.

The Iraq strikes on Friday and Saturday hit large and small Isis units, buildings, vehicles and fighting positions, and the bomber, fighter and remotely piloted aircraft used in the air strikes all returned safely, Central Command said.

Iraqi security forces later said they had retaken most of the town of Jurf al-Sakhar near Baghdad, the biggest gain in months of fighting.
“We have managed to push out Islamic State terrorists from the town of Jurf al-Sakhar today and now we are raising the Iraqi flag over the government offices,” said provincial governor Sadiq Madloul. – Daily Times.
