Recently released footage from the Combined Joint Task Force’s Operation Inherent Resolve shows a new wrinkle in the US-led coalition against ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, ISIL, or Daesh.
We’re used to seeing ISIS-controlled buildings and infrastructure getting leveled, but the latest batch of footage demonstrates just how precise these airstrikes can be.
For example, watch this armored vehicle-borne IED (VBIED) get taken out while on the move.
Here a hidden VBIED is taken out from the sky.
The vehicle is obscured by trees, but if you look closely, you can see parts of it flying after the explosion.
