US military video said to show airstrike against Islamic State

America’s military has released video of what it says is an airstrike against Islamic State fighters in Iraq.

The footage, purportedly shot on Tuesday, shows the destruction of an armed truck near the northern city of Irbil.

Militants have stormed across Iraq – taking control of a large swath of the north and west. ¨

America has carried out around 110 air-strikes so far, with the average daily military bill coming in at around 5.7 million euros.

The US says it is supporting Kurdish defence operations and Iraqi security forces, as they take on the Islamic State fighters.

President Barack Obama has pledged to consult Congress if he decides to expand the military action in the future.
