US and ‘partners’ launch airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria

The US military and partner nations from the anti-ISIS coalition have launched the first attacks on Islamic State targets in Syria, the Pentagon has confirmed.

The airstrikes against the Islamic State targets are currently underway in Syria, according to a Pentagon official.The strikes on targets in Syria reportedly involve a mix of fighter, bomber, and tomahawk land attack missiles.

"I can confirm that US military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL (ISIS/IS) terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles," Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.

"The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the US Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate," he added.

According to NBC News, the US military is planning to attack up to 20 targets in Syria, including “training sites, headquarters of Sunni fighters and troop encampments.”

A US official told ABC News that up to 20 locations have been targeted in the airstrikes in and around Raqqa. Tomahawk missiles have been fired from at least one ship in the Red Sea. The source also said that Arab nations participating in the airstrikes will be dropping bombs.

The US will spend $1 trillion to revitalize its ageing nuclear arsenal: Report

The United States plans to spend more than $1 trillion to revitalize its antiquated nuclear arsenal over the next three decades, according to a new report.

The Obama administration has dedicated a “sprawling new plant” in Kansas City, Mo.--bigger than the Pentagon-- to modernize “the aging weapons that the United States can fire from missiles, bombers and submarines,” The New York Times reports.

The Kansas City National Security Campus is part of a “wave of atomic revitalization that includes plans for a new generation of weapon carriers,” the report said.

The new project, which will leave most of the US nuclear arsenal intact, is in stark contrast to President Barack Obama’s campaign promise in 2008 of “a nuclear-free world.”

Instead, because of “political deals and geopolitical crises,” the Obama administration is overseeing an extensive modernization of its atomic arsenal while implementing only modest arms reductions, the Times said.

Gary Samore, Obama’s top nuclear adviser in his first term, said that Russia’s actions in Ukraine were a major factor. “That has made any measure to reduce the stockpile unilaterally politically impossible.”

The United States and Russia last year agreed to reduce their tactical nuclear weapons, but the deal is unlikely to complete after the recent tensions between the two countries over the crisis in Ukraine.

Congressional hawks believe that the new plan will put the United States in a “stronger position if a new arms race breaks out” and hope the renovated nuclear plants could allow the US arsenal to “expand rapidly” under a different president, according to the report.

ISIL kills 300 Iraqi troops with chlorine gas: MPs

The Takfiri ISIL militants have killed at least 300 Iraqi soldiers in a chlorine gas attack on an army battalion in the western al-Anabr Province, Iraqi lawmakers say.

The lawmakers added that the ISIL militants used the chemical gas against Iraqi soldiers in Saqlawiya district of the northern town of Fallujah.

It is not yet clear when the deadly incident took place.

The ISIL Takfiris, funded by some Western powers and their regional allies, have committed heinous crimes and threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, during their advances.

Meanwhile, Iraqi army officials said on Monday that at least 40 soldiers have been killed in clashes with the ISIL terrorists in the town of Sijir in Anbar Province.

Officials said the terrorists also captured nearly 70 other troopers on Sunday who have likely been transferred to the nearby city of Fallujah.

This comes as Iraqi army spokesman Lieutenant General Qassim al-Moussawi said on Sunday that the government forces managed to liberate overnight as many as 400 troops who had been surrounded by ISIL terrorists three days ago in Sijir.

The Iraqi military had launched a major operation against the ISIL militants in the city of Fallujah earlier in the day.

The ISIL terrorists control large swathes of Syria’s east and north. The ISIL sent its Takfiri militants into Iraq in June, seizing large parts of land straddling the border between Syria and Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and some other Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
