The United State Central Command uploaded video footage of an airstrike attack against an electronic warfare garrison in Syria. The fortress, reportedly under the control of Islamic State terrorists, is located near Ar Raqqah and was decimated as part of the ongoing Operation Inherent Resolve late last month.
This video is one of numerous scenes uploaded to the agency’s YouTube account as American forces combat the growing influence of Islamic State – also known as ISIS or ISIL – in Iraq, Syria, and beyond.

Another 13 using “fighter, attack, and remotely-piloted aircraft against the ISIL terrorists” were conducted during the same period by U.S. and allied forces.
