Canada in Iraq: Four CF-18s Bomb ISIS Targets

DND released more information early this morning about Canada's mission against ISIS, which has seen a slow down in the number of air strikes.

On May 6 two RCAF CF-18s hit an ISIS fighting position north  of the city of Bayji.

On May 8, a RCAF CF-18 attacked an ISIS target during a "roadside bomb installation" south-east of the city of Haditha.

On May 9, a RCAF CF-18 bombed an ISIS fighting position north of Bayji.

No new details on the expanded mission in Syria, which has been quiet since Canada's first strikes, due in large part to the lack of allies on the ground.
