29 ISIS Militants Killed
A northern Iraqi hospital has received the bodies of at least 29 suspected ISIS militants, the head of the Tal Afar hospital said Tuesday.
Danial Qassim said most were killed in U.S.-led coalition airstrikes overnight. Tal Afar is about 70 kilometers (43 miles) west of Mosul — Iraq’s second-largest city, which has been overtaken by the radical Islamist group.
U.S.-led airstrikes have been pounding targets in both Iraq and Syria, the countries where ISIS is trying to conquer more territory and solidify an Islamic state.
In Syria, large explosions rocked the crucial city of Kobani on Tuesday, a CNN team on the ground reported. It was not immediately clear what the cause of the explosions was, but one local fighter reported seeing four airstrikes Tuesday.
“Finally, they are hitting the right places,” he said Tuesday.
