    U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Monday, conducting 31 strikes consisting of 45 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 27 strikes consisting of 39 engagements against ISIS targets: Near Abu Kamal, a strike destroyed two ISIS wellheads. Near Shadaddi, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed a vehicle. Near Dawr Az Zawr, seven strikes engaged two ISIS tactical units and destroyed three vehicles, a tactical vehicle, two bunkers, two pumpjacks, a front-end loader, an improvised explosive device factory, an ISIS financial facility and an ISIS headquarters. Near Raqqa, 18 strikes engaged 15 ISIS tactical units; destroyed 13 fighting positions, two vehicles, a vehicle bomb, an IED factory and an ISIS headquarters; and damaged two fighting positions. Strikes in Iraq In Iraq, coalition military forces conducted four strikes consisting of six engagements against ISIS targets: Near Beiji, three strikes engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed a tactical vehicle storage facility, a tactical vehicle and an ISIS fuel tanker. Near Tikrit, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit. June 25 Strikes Additionally, 12 strikes were conducted in Syria and Iraq on June 25 that closed within the last 24 hours: Near Shadaddi, Syria, four strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units; destroyed five ISIS-held buildings, three command-and-control nodes, a mortar system and a fighting position; and damaged an ISIS-held building. Near Dayr az Zawr, a strike destroyed an ISIS-held building. Near Raqqa, Syria, four strikes engaged two ISIS tactical units and destroyed three fighting positions and an ISIS headquarters. Near Mosul, Iraq, three strikes engaged two ISIS tactical units; destroyed 14 fighting positions, five weapons systems, three medium machine guns, three rocket-propelled grenade systems, two mortar systems and a command-and-control node; and suppressed five mortar teams. 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.

    With support from UNDP and Toyota Iraq, displaced Iraqi youth learn job skills and regain hope for a better lifeMore than three million Iraqis are currently displaced as a result of the protracted conflict in Iraq. The experience of displacement has been particularly difficult for young people, whose education and employment opportunities have been upended. Immediate support is urgently needed to provide these young people with income opportunities to help them restart their lives and rebuild their country. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Toyota Iraq joined hands in 2016 to provide young displaced Iraqis with access to sustainable income opportunities. Under this flagship programme, UNDP’s Iraq Crisis Response and Resilience Programme (ICRRP) refers potential candidates to Toyota Iraq. The Toyota Iraq team provides top class vocational and on-the-job training whilst ICRRP facilitates job placement, if Toyota Iraq cannot recruit them, in local companies. The first group of youth graduated in basic vehicle maintenance in January 2017, whilst the second group graduated in customer relationship management and automotive parts storekeeping in June 2017. A third group will begin in August 2017. This programme also provides job opportunities for women affected by the crisis in Iraq, enabling them to go beyond their gendered role as caretakers. One of the women trainees, Taghrid Hassan, 29, from Mosul, said: “We thank you for this training; we have benefited so much from it. We have learned how to deal with different clients, and how to respond to their requests by phone and by email in a professional way. I am confident that the new skills I have acquired at Toyota Iraq will increase my chances of finding a job in the customer care field.” UNDP’s Assistant Administrator and Director of the Regional Bureau for Arab States, Mr. Mourad Wahba, visited Sumitomo Corporation, shareholder of Toyota Iraq, in Tokyo on 28 June 2017. He discussed with Mr. Naoki Hidaka, Executive Vice President of Sumitomo Corporation, the partnership between UNDP and Toyota Iraq. Mr. Wahba said: “Partnership between UNDP and leading private sector companies, such as Toyota Iraq, can play a key role in enhancing resilience of young people and empowering them as change makers in Iraq. UNDP is proud to work with Toyota Iraq in the implementation of this successful vocational training and job placement programme. It will help displaced Iraqi youth rebuild their lives.” Mr. Hidaka said: “Iraq is a special country for us, Sumitomo Corporation. We have been exporting Toyota and Hino products since the 1960s. We would like to contribute to a sound and sustainable development of the Iraqi society through our business activities. We continue to provide more education opportunities to Iraqi people together with UNDP.” Some of the trainees who have successfully completed the vocational training programme have been recruited by Toyota Iraq, like Omar Hussein Ali, 27, from Ramadi. He said: “I have a degree in mechanical engineering but had no working experience in this field. This programme helped me gain hands-on experience in vehicle maintenance. I am so glad I found a job at Toyota Iraq. With my steady salary, I can pay off my debts and provide for my twins and my wife.” UNDP’s ICRRP and Toyota Iraq are committed to continuing this partnership to support Iraqi youth to create a brighter future.
