Airstrikes hit ISIS convoys fleeing Fallujah, hundreds killed – On Thursday, an American spokesperson confirmed that coalition and Iraqi planes had attacked two ISIS convoys – one on late Tuesday night and a second on Wednesday. A suspected 175 ISIS vehicles were hit in the two sets of airstrikes, according to Col. Christopher Garver. A large group of vehicles gathering west of Tofaha Bridge southwest of Fallujah were identified on the ground as belonging to ISIS. Iraqi and coalition airstrikes attacked the convoy late Tuesday and into early Wednesday morning. “We estimate coalition strikes destroyed approximately 55 Da’esh [ISIS] vehicles and we know the Iraqi security forces destroyed more,” said Garver. Later on Wednesday, a second group of ISIS vehicles in the Albu Bali neighbourhood east of Ramadi were struck by both Iraqi and coalition planes. “We estimate the coalition strikes destroyed approximately 120 Da’esh vehicles. Again, we know the Iraqi security forces destroyed more,” Garver confirmed, noting that some militants fled the vehicles on foot.
