Canada in Iraq: RCAF CF-18's Bomb Two Positions (Last Week)

(I preface this post with an apology for delay - I came down with the flu - hence the lateness)

Last Friday, March 20, 2015 DND announced that Canadian CF-18s had bombed two more ISIS positions in Iraq, a weapons facility and a fighting position during the previous week.

CF-18s have seen little action in the past few weeks as coalition members are looking to increase their percentage of air strikes against ISIS, just as Canada is. Canada is expected to expand its air campaign into Syria in a vote in Parliament this Thursday, March 26, 2015.
