The attack is part of operations that are carried out by Iraqi forces and the USA to fight ISIS.
The video that was shared by Col. Myles B. Caggins III showed laser-guided bombs being dropped at an island.
The massive explosions created mushroom clouds billowing from the island.
Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) spokesman Col Myles B. Caggins shared the video on Twitter with the caption, “Here’s what it looks like when @USAFCENT F15 and F35 jets drop 36,000kg of bombs on a Daesh [ISIS] infested island.”
The clip also showed Iraqi counter-terrorism officers watching the bombing on the ground.
Major General Eric T. Hill, said, “We’re denying Daesh the ability to hide on Qanus Island”.
The bombing was done to flush out ISIS troops and to disrupt their ability to hide in the thick vegetation on the island.
Earlier this month, Major General Hill said that ISIS troops are hiding in the ungoverned spaces in Iraq, and are trying to regenerate.
