Two years of anti-IS strikes in numbers

Iraqi soldiers hold a position on the frontline on the outskirts of the Kurdish-controlled area of Makhmur, some 60 kilometres (35 miles) south of Mosul, on July 17, 2016The first strikes of a US-led campaign against the Islamic State group were launched in Iraq two years ago on Monday, with coalition operations later expanding to Syria. IS overran large areas north and west of Baghdad in 2014 and seized significant territory in northern and eastern Syria amid the chaos of that country’s civil war, declaring a cross-border “caliphate”. In Syria, coalition-backed Kurdish and Arab anti-IS forces defeated the jihadists in the city of Kobane, recaptured the city of Tal Abyad and the town of Manbij and have pledged to retake Raqa, the jihadists’ de facto Syrian capital.
