Barack Obama Orders US Military to Begin Airstrikes Against ISIS in Iraq

Less than a day after US president Barack Obama authorized US airstrikes on Islamist militants, ISIS, in Iraq, American military jets have launched devastating air raids, killing many ISIS members.

This afternoon two F18 warplanes attacked ISIS and their vehicles with 500lb laser-guided bombs.

ISIS is said to be the most well equipped and richest terror group in the world after they sized weapons from Iraqi military and also took weapons left behind by the US after they left Iraq in 2011. Some months back, they attacked Iraqi central bank and took $400million in cash.

America has also dropped relief supplies to hundreds of thousands of non-Muslim who are trapped in Sinjar mountains after fleeing their homes following deadly attacks by ISIS.
