WASHINGTON, D.C.: The US military confirmed it conducted nine airstrikes on Saturday near Arbil and Iraq’s largest dam in an effort to help Kurdish forces retake it from violent extremists. US Central Command (CENTCOM) said fighter jets and drones had destroyed or damaged four armored personnel carriers, seven armed vehicles, two Humvees, and an armored vehicle. CENTCOM “conducted these strikes under authority to support humanitarian efforts in Iraq, as well as to protect US personnel and facilities,” it added.
