Washington: US and partner nations conducted three air strikes in Syria and six in Iraq since Sunday in their battle against Islamic State, according to the US military.

The strikes in Iraq hit a tactical unit and destroyed an Islamic State building and heavy machine gun near Mosul, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement on Monday. Strikes also hit near Falluja, Baiji, al Asad and Kirkuk.

The air strikes in Syria hit near Kobani, Dayr az Zawr and ar Raqqa, destroying five vehicles and hitting a tactical unit, the statement said.

The strikes followed three days of air strikes by Jordan, which said on Sunday it had conducted 56 bombing raids in that period against the militants in northeastern Syria, targeting key bases and arms depots in a stepped-up campaign in response to the killing of a Jordanian pilot.
