International coalition destroys ISIS hideout in Anbar desert

A large "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) weapons cache was destroyed in an international coalition airstrike in the Anbar desert, the al-Jazeera and al-Badiya Command said on Wednesday (October 16th).

"An airstrike carried out by international coalition warplanes at noon Tuesday in Wadi al-Qadhf, on the Iraqi-Syrian border, destroyed a large underground hideout featuring a mud room used by ISIS militants as a headquarters," commander Maj. Gen. Qasim al-Mohammedi told Diyaruna.

The hideout contained various medium and light weapons, ammunition, a fuel tanker, and a locally-made rocket launcher, he said.

The airstrike, launched in co-ordination with Iraqi forces, is part of "joint efforts to destroy ISIS infrastructure" and prevent future attacks against civilians, he said.
