OTTAWA, November 12. /TASS/. Royal Canadian Air Force, being part of the coalition mission against ISIS militants, destroyed its artillery section in Iraq, Canadian Ministry of National Defense reports.
The airstrikes were conducted near Baiji, which is 200 km north of Baghdad. “These strikes demonstrate Canada’s fixed determination to tackle the threat of terrorism and stand with our allies against Islamic State atrocities,” the head of Ministry of National Defense Robert Nicholson. Earlier, the US Central Command said that a total of 18 airstrikes were conducted against ISIS militants in Iraq. In particular near Fallujah, Baiji, Mosul, Ar Rutba.
Canadian military contingent is stationed at an air base in Kuwait. To fight the Islamic State Prime Minister Stephen Harper has sent a total of six jet fighters, two CP-140 Aurora scout aircrafts and one flying tanker Airbus CC-150 Polaris. 600 military personnel have come to the Middle East "to support air mission."
Harper earlier said the Canadian aviation will bomb the IS targets only on the territory of Iraq. He noted that Canadian military will not participate in a possible ground operation.
