Iraqi air force bombs IS positions
Iraqi warplanes Wednesday bombed areas controlled by militants of the Islamic State (IS) Sunni extremist organisation in the northern city of Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, a security source said.
The source explained to Efe news agency that a military aircraft launched the first missile at an IS position but it was unclear if there were any casualties in the strike.
A second missile was fired at a house containing civilians, killing three women and injuring two other people of the same family, including a child.
Earlier this week, a US military plane dropped leaflets bearing messages from the Iraqi defence ministry telling citizens to evacuate their homes located near areas controlled by the IS.
