US Airstrike Targets ISIS Fighters Near Baghdad

Airstrike was in a new area of operations for U.S. fighter aircraft.

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.
