In Iraq, four air strikes each near Hit and Mosul struck a large militant tactical unit, a training camp and three weapons factories and destroyed assembly areas and fighting positions, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement on Tuesday.

Strikes also targeted militant positions and equipment near Kirkuk, Qayyarah, Ramadi and al Huwayjah, the statement said.

The three strikes in Syria were concentrated near Al Hawl, where they destroyed seven militant fighting positions, the statement said.
