Washington: Aircraft from Saudi Arabia and the UAE joined US warplanes in a new wave of bombing raids yesterday against Islamic State jihadists in Syria, the US military said.
Coalition fighter jets and robotic drone planes conducted six strikes in Syria, hitting militant tanks, oil refineries and a training camp.
American aircraft also conducted three air raids in Iraq over the past 24 hours, including two in northeast of Fallujah.
Centcom offered no further details on the precise role of the allied aircraft in the latest strikes.
US and coalition aircraft have flown more than 4,000 sorties in an air campaign that began in Iraq on August 8 and was extended to Syria on September 23.
