On Feb. 2 in Syria, coalition military forces conducted six strikes consisting of 16 engagements against ISIS targets near Abu Kamal. The strikes engaged five ISIS tactical units and destroyed four fighting positions, an ISIS supply route, two staging facilities, three ISIS vehicles and damaged a mortar system.
No reported strikes were conducted in Iraq on Feb. 2.
Additionally, officials said, the task force received late reporting of a strike consisting of two engagements conducted Feb. 1 in Syria against ISIS targets near Abu Kamal. The strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed two ISIS lines of communication.
Part of Operation Inherent Resolve
The strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group’s ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, officials said.
This report provides details of all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing, or remotely piloted aircraft, rocket-propelled artillery and ground-based tactical artillery.
A strike refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative effect in that location, officials explained. For example, they said, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined.
Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.
