US airstrike ISISYouTube/CJTF Operation Inherent Resolve

The US military has released a video it says shows the US-led anti-ISIS coalition obliterating an ISIS weapons storage facility near Qayyarah, Iraq.

The airstrikes were conducted April 1 as part of a larger operation by the coalition on that day, with 17 strikes being carried out throughout Iraq and Syria.

US Central Command said the airstrikes near Qayyarah hit a range of targets beyond the weapons cache. The coalition also conducted two airstrikes that destroyed a tactical vehicle and two mortar positions used by ISIS, the militant group also known as the Islamic State, ISIL, or Daesh.

The additional strikes throughout Iraq and Syria targeted ISIS tactical units, vehicle-borne explosive devices, tunnel systems, and bulldozers. The coalition conducted five strikes in Syria and 12 in Iraq. A strike, as defined by the US military, is "one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect."

The following GIF shows the airstrike that destroyed ISIS' weapons storage facility near Qayyarah:
