Airstrikes begin against ISIS
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said late Monday, airstrikes against ISIS targets have begun.
"I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles," Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said. "Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time. The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief."
President Obama promised action against ISIS in a national address two weeks ago.
