Baghdad: The US-led international coalition on Tuesday bombed Islamic State (IS) positions in Iraq's Mosul city, killing four key commanders, military officials here said.

According to a statement issued by the Military Intelligence, the coalition airstrikes hit several positions in the al-Tanak neighbourhood in western Mosul, Efe news reported.

The warplanes of the international coalition resumed bombings on Tuesday after a 16-hour suspension of operations due to bad weather.

On February 19, Iraqi security forces began an offensive in western Mosul, two weeks after concluding operations to expel IS from the eastern section of the city.

The IS seized Mosul in 2014.
