Coalition Airstrike Near Kubaysah Against Daesh Staging Areas


Coalition airstrikes destroyed multiple enemy targets near Hit and Kubaysah, Iraq in coordination with and in support of the Government of Iraq on Sept. 26, 2015. The strikes attacked key ISIL targets in the Anbar province, an ISIL staging area at the Kubaysah cement factory. The Coalition targeted only portions of the Kubaysah cement factory because those portions were being used by Daesh as a staging area for their fighters, equipment, and weapons. The Coalition takes great care to reduce collateral damage and preserve Iraqi infrastructure.
