The strike targeted a position used by the commanders of the group, south of the town of Deshaisha, the statement said.

The Iraqi air force has already carried out several air strikes against the group in Syria since last year, with the approval of the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad and the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State.
