The Iraqi Air Force (IqAF) released a video on 21 August showing what it said were its F-16 fighters being refuelled by a US-led coalition tanker during a strike mission against Islamic State targets in Syria a week earlier.

The footage showed an unarmed IqAF F-16D linking up with the tankerís boom refuelling system and then two F-16Cs carrying Paveway guided bombs, Sniper targeting pods, and Sidewinder air-to-air missiles doing the same.

The IqAF said on 16 August that F-16 jets had carried out a successful airstrike inside Syria that targeted Islamic State militants planning suicide attacks in Iraq.
