Sixteen strikes in Iraq were concentrated in Mosul, Ramadi and Kisik, where they hit four of the militant group's tactical units and destroyed four of its bunkers, among other damage, the coalition said in the statement, released on Wednesday.

In Syria, eight strikes near five cities destroyed an ISIS excavator and oil booster pump generator as well as fighting positions, vehicles and other targets, the Combined Joint Task Force said.
