Iraq announced on Friday (May 25) it had carried out air strikes against ISIS in Syria.

“Iraqi F-16 planes carried out Thursday morning raids against the headquarters of ISIS leaders and an explosives depot occupied by ISIS in Syria’s Hajin region,” a statement by Iraq’s operations command said.

Several strikes have been carried out by Iraq and the international coalition since Thursday against the center of Hajin.

Wissam Muhammad, a media activist, told Orient TV, thousands of civilians still trapped in Hajin because ISIS has booby-trapped all the entrances to the city. Thousands of prisoners are also held by the terrorists there, he added.

Hajin is in Deir-ez-Zor province in eastern Syria, near the Syrian-Iraqi border.
