(Before It's News)

The Washington Examiner reports:

An Islamic State command-and-control headquarters in western Mosul was destroyed by a coalition air strike, the Defense Department announced on Saturday.

The five-story Bab Sinjar administration building, which also served as a propaganda facility, was located in the Jumhuri medical community complex, the release from Operation Inherent Resolve said. The U.S.-led coalition carried out the strike in Iraq on Friday.

Islamic State terrorists regularly use protected sites like hospitals, schools and mosques for activities to try to protect themselves from air strikes, but the coalition determined through intelligence collection that the building was no longer used for any medical purposes and that there were no civilians at the site.
And it’s not just US forces pounding ISIS as Russia has been reining down havoc and destruction too:

The Daily Star reports:

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that long-range bombers had fired a series of cruise missiles at ISIS targets around the Syrian city of Raqqa.

The ministry said in a statement that the Tupolev-95 bombers had taken off from Russia and flown over Iran and Iraq to get to Syria where it said they had successfully targeted militant training camps and a command point.

Russia carried out a series of sustained attacks on Raqqa in late 2015, but has since focused its fire power around Aleppo and other rebel-held areas.
