Overseas Network, September 11, local time, 10, led by the U.S. military coalition launched a military operation to bomb an island in Iraq. The United States said in a statement that the island was under the control of the Islamic State.

According to foreign media reports such as Fox News and Daily Mail, the island is situated on the coast of the Tigris River and Salahudin Province in northern Iraq. On the same day, the US military dispatched F-15 and F-35 fighters and dropped 40 tons of laser-guided bombs. The operation was part of an anti-Islamic coalition operation led by Iraqi forces and the United States.

U.S. officials call the island a major transportation hub for fighter jets from the Islamic State to and from Syria. We refuse to hide the Islamic State on this island, said the commander in charge of air strikes. We will continue to bring stability to the region.

According to official videos, mushroom clouds from a massive explosion have sprung up on the island, which appears to have been bombed by carpets. At the same time, Iraqi anti-terrorism forces are also operating on the ground to destroy the remaining forces of the Islamic State on the island.

According to data released by the U.S. Air Force, the number of bombs used by U.S. warplanes against the Islamic State has doubled in the past few months. In August, more than 200 bombs were dropped within the scope of terrorist organizations. (Overseas Network/Li Meng)
