U.S.-led coalition warplanes and Iraqi forces pounded Daesh positions in the northwestern city of Tal Afar on Tuesday, killing at least 17 terrorists, according to an Iraqi military officer.

Lieutenant Colonel Shams al-Din al-Anbari said the attacks targeted Daesh arms depots and training sites in the city.

“At least 17 militants were killed and seven others injured,” said.

The Iraqi officer said Tuesday’s attacks are part of a “plan to undermine Daesh fighting capabilities to make it easy for Iraqi forces to storm the city”.

Last month, Iraqi forces dislodged Daesh from their last stronghold in Mosul, once Iraq’s second largest city.
