The US-led coalition against Daesh launched 22 attacks on Wednesday, 11 each in Syria and Iraq, Reuters reports. 

Five of the strikes in Syria were in the contested city of Kobani near the Turkish border, where they destroyed four fighting positions, a building and a tactical unit, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement on Thursday.

The Joint Task Force continued to say strikes were launched near seven Iraqi cities including Mosul, Baiji and al Qaim, destroying a shipping container, tactical units, buildings, boats and land vehicles.

The US is leading an international coalition which includes France, Germany and Saudi Arabia, and has carried out more than 1,200 air strikes against Daesh in Iraq and Syria since operations began in August, according to the task force.
