Recent footage released by the Combined Joint Task Force‘s Operation Inherent Resolve shows a US-led coalition warplane destroying an ISIS weapons cache near the group’s Syrian capital of Al-Raqqah on May 20.
The footage shows a careful strike that waits for a vehicle to clear the area before leveling the building. Secondary explosions after the precision bomb hits indicate that the building was being used to store explosives.
Currently, the US is backing the Syrian Democratic Forces to take back the Manbij pocket in northwestern Syria, and then to continue southwest toward Raqqah, where ISIS is most established.
