The above video was uploaded to Youtube by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense.
It shows several strikes against ISIS targets, several of which are directly against ISIS fighters in the open.
Join airstrikes against ISIS positions, personnel and strategic targets have continued over the last several week with numerous countries taking part.
Despite these strikes, some analysts say ISIS is still gaining ground in Syria. According to Fox News:
The Islamic State terror group reportedly has increased the amount of territory they control in Syria as the U.S.-led bombing campaign approaches its four-month anniversary.
The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. government and independent assessments, say that the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS, has control of a large swath of northeastern Syria and is creeping toward key cities in the country’s west, including Aleppo, a center of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
The Journal reports that ISIS’ expansion of control can partially be attributed to the U.S. focus on Iraq, where it is working closely with Baghdad to roll back gains made by ISIS last summer. However, as a result, ISIS fighters are flowing into Syria unchecked. In other cases, Syrian rebel groups who once fought against ISIS have been convinced to join their side.
