    U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Tuesday, conducting 21 strikes consisting of 41 engagements, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported yesterday. Officials reported details of yesterday’s strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports. Strikes in Syria In Syria, coalition military forces conducted 12 strikes consisting of 17 engagements against ISIS targets: Near Dayr Az Zawr, a strike destroyed an ISIS wellhead. Near Raqqa, 11 strikes engaged seven ISIS tactical units and destroyed 30 fighting positions, a logistics node and an ISIS unmanned aerial system. Strikes in Iraq In Iraq, coalition military forces conducted nine strikes consisting of 24 engagements against ISIS targets: Near Beiji, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed a vehicle. Near Qaim, three strikes destroyed two ISIS staging areas and an ISIS-held building Near Samarra, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit. Near Tal Afar, four strikes engaged two ISIS tactical units and destroyed 13 fighting positions, three ISIS-held buildings, three supply caches, an ISIS training camp and a mortar system. Previous Strikes Additionally, 38 strikes consisting of 44 engagements were conducted in Syria and Iraq on Aug. 9-10 and Aug. 14 that closed within the last 24 hours. On Aug. 9, near Dayr Az Zawr, Syria, two strikes destroyed three ISIS oil stills. On Aug. 10, near Dayr Az Zawr, Syria, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed three tunnel entrances and two ISIS-held buildings. On Aug. 14, near Abu Kamal, Syria, a strike destroyed five ISIS oil equipment items. On Aug. 14, near Raqqa, Syria, 32 strikes engaged 20 ISIS tactical units and destroyed 18 fighting positions, three improvised explosive devices, three heavy machine guns, three command-and-control nodes, a logistics node, an anti-aircraft artillery system and an IED factory. On Aug. 14, near Tal Afar, Iraq, a strike suppressed an ISIS tactical unit. On Aug. 14, near Tuz, Iraq, a strike destroyed two ISIS headquarters, a vehicle storage facility, a vehicle, a staging area and a weapons cache. Part of Operation Inherent Resolve These strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group’s ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, task force officials said. The list above contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing or remotely piloted aircraft; rocket-propelled artillery; and some ground-based tactical artillery when fired on planned targets, officials noted. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike, they added. A strike, as defined by the coalition, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single or cumulative effect. For example, task force officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined, officials said. The task force does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.

    The Commission of Integrity has denied reports on the release of Iraqi Airways chairman following his arrest “red-handed” taking a bribe. A commission statement on August 15 said that reports by some media outlets that claimed the release of Samer Kabba, the Iraqi Airways chairman, were untrue. The statement said the investigating judge referred the case to the criminal court to complete legal procedures. It also urged media outlets to verify reports on this issue. Media reports said Kabba was released on bail pending investigations after his arrest while accepting a bribe. An MP earlier warned against pressures on the judiciary to release Kabba.

    By John Lee. Saudi Arabia is reportedly planning to re-open the Arar border crossing with Iraq for the first time since 1990. Sohaib al-Rawi, the governor of Anbar province, is quoted as saying that the Iraqi government had deployed troops to protect the desert route leading to Arar and called its opening a “significant move” to boost ties. The border was closed after the two countries cut ties following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait. (Sources: Al Jazeera, Reuters, Rudaw) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Iraqi Interior Minister Qasim al-Araji (pictured) has said that Saudi Prince Mohammad bin-Salman has “officially asked Iraq to act as a mediator between Tehran and Riyadh to reduce tensions.” According to a news agency report, Al-Araji made the remarks at a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli in Tehran. Referring to his recent visit to Saudi Arabia and meeting with the Saudi prince, Al-Araji said: “Mohammad bin-Salman requested me officially for Iraq’s mediation between Iran and Saudi Arabia to reduce tensions. Before, Malik Salman had made such a request too. I told them that they should treat Iranian pilgrims with respect and the best possible way and allow them to visit Al-Baqi’ cemetery. “The Saudi party gave some promises with this regard, and now Iranian pilgrims can visit the cemetery. We believe that relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia can held establishing security in the region”. (Source: GardaWorld) (Picture credit: Mohsen Ahmed Alkhafaji) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.
