US Airstrike Targets ISIS Fighters Near Baghdad
Airstrike was in a new area of operations for U.S. fighter aircraft.
— -- There was a U.S. airstrike southwest of Baghdad today, a new area of operations for U.S. fighter aircraft, ABC News has learned.
But this isn't an indicator of expanded airstrikes in Iraq, a U.S. official told ABC News.
An aircraft was re-directed and conducted a strike to support the Iraqi ground troops, the official said.
The U.S. Central Command, or CentComm, is expected to detail the attack later today.
