Posted: July 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

The terrorist group Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State, claims to have shot down a US military plane in the western part of Anbar province.

Daesh claims that the US crewmembers aboard the plane are dead.

The jet was reportedly operating near Ain Al-Asad air base, run jointly by Iraq and the US.

There is no truth to reports of ISIL downing a US aircraft near Anbar. All US & Coalition aircraft accounted for at this time @CJTFOIR

 American forces have been attempting to stabilize the province as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, conducting roughly 73 airstrikes in Iraq in the last week.
