“Americans informed the Syrian representative at the United Nations that strikes will be delivered at Islamic State positions in Racca,” AFP news agency quoted him as saying.
Associated Press reported with reference to American officials that five Arabic states were also taking part in the air strikes on ISIS militants in Syria. These are Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, according to Reuters news agency, Qatar plays only a supporting role in this operation.
Earlier, Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby reported that The United States and its allies launched air strikes on the positions of the Islamic State.
“U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles,” Kirby said. “Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time,” he added.
He declined to specify which states are involved in the operation together with the United States. Only France previously said it joined the American missile and bomb strikes on the ISIL positions in Iraq. Meanwhile, Reuters reported with reference to American military that Arab countries assisted the United States in the operation.
