U.S. airstrikes have killed 60 Islamic State terrorists in the last 10 days, U.S. Central Command officials told Military Times.
The spree of airstrikes against the terrorist group comes amid renewed attention to the terrorist group’s affiliate in Yemen. The Thursday strikes reportedly killed an additional nine ISIS terrorists in the region and follow a slew of U.S. sanctions placed on the terror group’s leaders in Yemen. The U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned several ISIS in Yemen leaders Wednesday, including financiers, weapons providers, and the leader known as Abu Sulayman al-Adani.
The spree began with Oct. 17 strikes targeting a training camp in the region that killed “dozens” of fighters. “ISIS used the camps to train militants to conduct terror attacks using AK-47s, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and endurance training,” the Pentagon noted in an Oct. 17 statement.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/27/10-days-of-hell-60-isis-terrorists-obliterated-by-us/” target=”_blank”]
