Iraqi warplanes and helicopters destroyed around 200 vehicles believed to be transporting ISIS fighters fleeing one of their former strongholds, a senior official told NBC News on Thursday.
Brig. Yahya Rasool, a spokesman for Iraq's Joint Operation Command, said the convoy was targeted on a road about 12 miles south of Fallujah on Wednesday.
"All ISIS militants traveling in these vehicles were killed," he said without providing a number of people who died.
The Iraqi military released video of the airstrikes. The Pentagon said Wednesday that it did not have details about the airstrikes.
