IRAQ (AFNS) -- Coalition strikes on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant fighters fleeing in a convoy near Habbaniyah, Iraq, were recently conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to eliminate the ISIL terrorist group and the threat they pose to Iraq, Syria and the wider international community.

The destruction of ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq further limits the group's ability to project terror and conduct operations.

Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James praised the effort of the Airmen involved, as well as U.S. coalition partners.

"You may be following the news of the large airstrike outside Fallujah against (ISIL) fighters and vehicles this week,” James said. “Your United States Air Force rolled in with F-15E (Strike Eagles), A-10 (Thunderbolt IIs), B-52 (Stratofortresses), and MQ-1 (Predators). Alongside Iraqi and coalition partners, many (ISIL) vehicles and fighters were destroyed. We will continue to support our Iraqi partners as they lead the fight against (ISIL). Well done ‪Airmen!"‬‬
