Canada’s Department of Defence is expected to release more information to Canadians tomorrow – about today’s latest airstrikes on Islamic state targets in Iraq.
As part of the military coalition, Canadian Forces CF-18s were back in the skies today – using a laser-guided bomb to hit an artillery position close-by the city of Bayji – which is north of Baghdad.
A statement from Defence Minister Rob Nicholson confirms that the bombing took place on Remembrance Day – as he thanked the personnel taking part in Canada’s combat mission against the Islamic State group.
