SOUTHWEST ASIA –
A combined operation involving Iraqi Special Operations Forces with assistance of Coalition Forces killed approximately 20 ISIS fighters on Oct. 31, 2018 in the Makmuhr Mountains in Northern Iraq.
The operation consisted of air strikes followed by a ground attack by Iraqi Special Operations Forces, and demonstrates ISOF’s resolve to defeat ISIS.
“This successful strike conducted by the ISF disrupts ISIS networks as they continue to maintain the pressure required to prevent their resurgence,” said Maj. Gen. Patrick Roberson, Commander of Special Operations Joint Task Force- Operation Inherent Resolve.
Coalition Forces continue to work with the Government of Iraq to support their security forces in the fight against terrorism.
