WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An international coalition led by the United States targeted Islamic State in Iraq with 20 air strikes on Thursday, the military said in a statement on Friday.

There were no strikes in Syria, the statement showed.

The attacks were concentrated near Ramadi, where five strikes hit tactical units and also destroyed fighting positions, a vehicle, a boat, a bomb and two staging areas while also damaging a headquarters building for the militant group, the military said.
