TAMPA, Fla., August 15, 2014 — U.S. military forces continued to attack ISIL terrorists in Iraq today, with remotely piloted aircraft successfully conducting airstrikes on two armed vehicles south of the village of Sinjar.

At approximately 10:10 a.m. EDT, U.S. aircraft struck and destroyed two vehicles in the area.
