U.S. warplanes dropped 40 tons of bombs on an ISIS-infested island in Iraq.
The operation, which targeted the Qanus Island in the Tigris River, was carried out by the US and a coalition of other countries in the fight to forever erase ISIS strongholds in the country.
“Here’s what it looks like when @USAFCENT #F15 and #F35 jets drop 36,000 Kg of bombs on a Daesh infested island,” the task force wrote on Twitter.

Can you say ‘carpet bombing’, boys and girls? Why yes you can!
U.S. jets bombed an ISIS-“infested island” in northern Iraq Tuesday, according to new video and a statement from the U.S.-led coalition battling the terrorist group.
More than 80,000 pounds of laser-guided bombs were dropped on the island located on the Tigris River south of Mosul, according to U.S. Army Col. Myles B. Caggins III, a spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, based in Baghdad.
U.S. officials called the island a “major transit hub” for ISIS fighters going in and out of Syria.
“We’re denying [ISIS] the ability to hide on Qanus Island,” said Maj. Gen. Eric T. Hill, the commander of the Special Operations Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve. “We’re setting the conditions for our partner forces to continue bringing stability to the region.”
A tweet from OIR Spokesman Col. Myles B. Caggins, which aired the video, said: “Here’s what it looks like when @USAFCENT F15 and F35 jets drop 36,000kg of bombs on a Daesh [ISIS] infested island.”
U.S. jets have doubled the amount of bombs targeting ISIS in the past month, according to new strike data released from the U.S. Air Force. More
It’s nice to see my tax dollars spent on something worthwhile.
Anybody else notice that not one of those bombs fell in the river. Everyone landed on the island. That’s precision.
