The U.S.-led coalition working hard to take out ISIS has just released badass footage showing the destruction of the alleged ISIS headquarters in the Mosul.
Officials from Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF) released the footage on Monday that show violent airstrikes on the Ashur Hotel in Mosul, Iraq, reportedly used as the headquarters for ISIS military meetings.

In a report by the Department of Defense, two ISIS buildings were destroyed in the attack, as well as a range of weapons systems, supply routes, and tactical units:
Near Mosul, four strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units, an ISIS heavy machine gun team and an ISIS sniper team; destroyed six fighting positions, two heavy machine guns, two rocket-propelled grenade systems, two VBIEDs, two VBIED factories, two mortar systems, a command and control node, a tactical vehicle, a roadblock, a supply cache, and an ISIS-held building; damaged eight supply routes and an ISIS-held building; and suppressed 17 ISIS mortar teams and ten ISIS tactical units.
The U.S.-backed Iraqi alliance has now taken over the area and will begin the operation to reclaim it on March 10. Iraqi military officials have claimed that victory over ISIS forces in Mosul is imminent.
“Despite the tough fighting, we are moving ahead in persistence to finish the battle for the western side within a month,” Iraqi Lt. Gen. Talib Shaghati, the Counter Terrorism Service (CTS) head, said last week.
But now they have run into something else.
There are now suspicions arising that ISIS is employing chemical weapons to defend its Mosul territory..
Keep our soldiers in your prayers!
