Ongoing U.S. Support to Counter Da’esh in Anbar and Iraq

Recent news reports alleging that the U.S.-led coalition has halted air operations or military cooperation with Iraqi Security Forces are simply untrue. There has been no halt to Coalition airstrikes against Da’esh or cessation of U.S. advise and assist efforts in Anbar province. On October 2nd and 3rd, the coalition conducted airstrikes across Anbar province, including nine airstrikes in direct support of Iraqi military forces’ actions near Ramadi. The U.S.-led coalition remains committed to working with its Iraqi partners in operations to degrade and destroy Da’esh in Anbar province and throughout Iraq.
