Canada in Iraq - CF18's Bomb 3 Positions near Mosul

After a quiet 11 days for the CAF in Kuwait, CF-18s bombed three ISIS fighting positions near Mosul on February 24, 2015.

Mosul is expected to be the scene of a major battle between 25,000 Iraqi and Kurdish forces and ISIS who currently controls the town. Iraqi forces are upset with the Pentagon, as they announced the plan to retake Mosul before Iraqi forces felt it was necessary.

The CAF and RCAF say they are prepared to concentrate their efforts around Mosul, should the coalition ask for more efforts around the city.
