With the coalition's help, Syrian Kurds have been pushing Islamic State in recent fighting.

An air strike near the Syrian town of Dayr az Zawr also hit an Islamic State oil facility.
In Iraq, Islamic state tactical units, fighting positions, vehicles and checkpoints were hit in seven strikes near Mosul, Kirkuk, Al Asad, Ar Rutbah and Tal Afar, the task force said.
