Canada and Iraq: RCAF strikes ISIS Weapons Facility in Mosul

The coalition airstrikes continue against ISIS. The coalition has stepped up the consistency of airstrikes against numerous ISIS positions in Iraq and Syria following the attacks in Paris one week ago.

Late yesterday DND released the following information regarding Canada's latest contribution to the fight.

On 19 November 2015, while taking part in coalition airstrikes to increase Iraqi security forces' freedom of movement in the region, two CF-18 Hornets successfully struck an ISIS weapons production facility in the vicinity of Mosul using precision guided munitions.
