Iraq Strikes ISIS With Su-25

Iraqi pilots on Russian Sukhoi SU-25 fighter jets bombed Islamic State targets near the city of Tikrit, forcing militants to flee the area, a local military source said.
According to the source, these are the first Sukhoi flights to take place near Tikrit.
Iraq received a batch of Russian-built Su-25 aircraft in June, after the United States delayed delivery of F-16 fighter jets, which the Iraqi Air Force had planned to use in the fight against the Islamic State.
