The U.S. military has begun a second round of airstrikes against ISIS near Irbil, U.S. officials told CNN on Friday. News of the latest airstrikes came just after the governor of Irbil, Nawzad Hadi, told CNN, that ISIS fighters may be as close as 30 kilometers to Irbil. Air strikes are "very important" because ISIS fighters are well armed and are outgunning the Peshmerga, thanks to the weapons the militants seized from the Iraqi military in Mosul, Hadi said.


U.S. military aircraft have conducted a strike on ISIS artillery that had been used near Irbil, Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Friday on Twitter. The artillery had been used against Kurdish forces defending Irbil, near U.S. personnel, the tweet said.
