US Aerial Footage Claims Targeting 5 ISIS Positions Simultaneously in Syria’s Manbij

Thu Jul 21, 2016 16:35:26

A claimed video released by the US Defense Department shows the jaw-dropping moment airstrikes take out five terrorist targets at once, plus one moving vehicle, according to Daily Mail report.

The video begins with an aerial shot of a series of ISIS compounds near Manbij, Syria, on July 5.

A split second later, precision airpower explodes five targets simultaneously, blasting a series of buildings linked to the violent extremists.




A second video shows Operation Inherent Resolve, the operational name for the military intervention against ISIS, in action against a moving target.

In the claimed video, a coalition airstrike destroys an ISIS vehicle as it nears Waleed, Iraq, on July 7.

The bomb impressively strikes the vehicle as it speeds through the desert.

The car continues to speed through, ablaze, until it halts to a stop.

The objective of the airstrike was to deny logistics lines and disrupt terrorist operations, officials said.

Meanwhile, the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria has been accused of killing more than 100 civilians since June.

Human rights groups say airstrikes in Manbij — the same city from the five-compound explosions — have killed many civilians and wounded scores more.

Airstrikes on Islamic State-held villages in northern Syria killed at least 56 civilians on Tuesday as intense fighting was underway between the militants and US-backed fighters, Syrian opposition activists and the extremist group said.

Residents in the area blamed the US-led coalition for the strikes that targeted two villages, Tokhar and Hoshariyeh, which are controlled by ISIS, activists said.

The villages are near the ISIS stronghold of Manbij, a town that members of the predominantly Kurdish Syria Democratic Forces have been trying to capture in a weeks-long offensive.

The death toll from the airstrikes, which coincided with a wide ground offensive by the extremists against SDF fighters, ranged between 56 and 200.

If it is confirmed that 200 people were killed, it would be the deadliest strike by the US-led coalition since it began its military campaign against ISIS in Syria almost two years ago.

US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are the main Supporters of ISIS Militants and terrorists in war on Syria and Iraq.
