U.S drops 36,000 kg of bombs on 'ISIS-infested island'
The most violent and merciless group in the world who holds a majority of control of Syria were taught a lesson by the United States of America.
US Air Force jets dropped 36,000 kg of bombs on what the US called an "ISIS-infested island" in Iraq, a video of which was shared on Twitter. F-15 and F-35 jets were used to bomb the Qanus Island. Troops were then sent in to clear the area, that was described as a 'transit hub' for ISIS militants coming from Syria. Ferocious F-15 and F-35 stealth jets took part in a bombing run against 'ISIS infested island'.
40 tons of explosives were dropped on Qanus Island, which sits in the Tigris River 50 miles south of Mosul, in order to destroy hiding spots. Iraqi special forces troops were then sent in to clear the area of jihadi fighters. US military said the island is used as a 'transit hub' for ISIS fighters from Syria
Colonel Myles B Caggins, the spokesman for Operation Joint Resolve, tweeted: 'Here’s what it looks like when US Air Force F15 and F35 jets drop 36,000 kg of bombs on a Daesh infested island.' Daesh is a derogatory Arabic term for ISIS.
