Trying to stop the “genocide”
Check it out:
The U.S. military launched two more rounds of airstrikes Friday against Islamic militants in northern Iraq, taking out two mortar positions and a seven-vehicle convoy, the Pentagon said.
The strikes came just hours after American fighter jets struck an artillery site — the first military action in Iraq since President Obama authorized the use of force to protect U.S. personnel as well as Iraqi civilians facing a possible “genocide.”
Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said the U.S. launched the latest airstrikes to help defend the city of Irbil, where U.S. personnel are “assisting the government of Iraq.”
