The five attacks by U.S. fighter jets and drones destroyed four armed Islamic State vehicles — starting with one that was firing on Kurdish forces near the city of Irbil.
The U.S. military said the air strikes took place from about 2:15 a.m. to 7:25 a.m. EDT Sunday.
President Obama ordered the strikes to protect U.S. personnel and religious minorities facing a possible “genocide” in northern Iraq.
