WASHINGTON, June 6 (KUNA) -- The US-led coalition continued to strike ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq, with a total of 21 airstrikes conducted between June 5 and 6, the Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) said in a statement released Saturday.
Commenting after reports of civilian casualties in Syria, CJTF-OIR Chief-of-Staff Thomas Weidley said in the statement that, "the coalition targeting process minimizes collateral damage and maximizes precise effects on Daesh.
"Air crews are making smart decisions and applying tactical patience every day." In Syria seven airstrikes were carried out near two areas. Near Al Hasakah, four airstrikes struck two large and two small ISIL tactical units, destroying six ISIL fighting positions, two ISIL vehicles, an ISIL armored vehicle and an ISIL armored personnel carrier.
