Canadian warplanes have conducted another attack on Islamic State forces.
Two CF-18s Hornets bombed an extremist fighting position about 250 kilometres southwest of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.
National Defence reports the attack, which happened Wednesday, was carried out with laser-guide munitions and a Canadian C-140 Aurora surveillance plane provided intelligence and reconnaissance support.
Over 114 sorties have been carried out since the fighter jets deployed to Kuwait in support of the U.S.-led coalition.
Last week, Canadian jets supporting Iraqi security forces north-east of Mosul also dropped bombs on Islamic State bunkers and two heavy machine gun emplacements.
