KUWAIT CITY, October 5. /TASS/. The international coalition forces, led by the United States, on Saturday continued to launch airstrikes on the positions of the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - ISIL) militants, killing 35 extremists, Arab media reported.
The main strikes were made on the night to Saturday. Warplanes of Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates participated in the operation together with the United States. Drones were also used in the operation.
Four bombardments were made in the area of the Kobani city on the border with Turkey that is besieged by extremists. A group of ISIL bandits, three artillery positions and several vehicles were destroyed in the operation.
A warehouse was exploded in Syria’s north-eastern province where 30 terrorists were liquidated.
The U.S. armed forces since August 8 have been launching airstrikes on the ISIL positions in Iraq, and in September spread this operation to Syria’s territory. The U.S. Central Command controls the operation. Along with the United States, the military campaign participants are France, the UK, Belgium, Australia and five Arab states: Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar. The Netherlands and Turkey, in particular, plan to join them. NATO has the co-ordinating role in this campaign. Washington says these efforts are supported by more than 50 countries and a number of international organisations.
