Russia, the United States and Iran have carried out airstrikes in Syria against Islamic State targets in support of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a monitoring group said on Monday.
The SDF has launched an offensive to retake Raqqa, Islamic State’s de facto capital in Syria, in northern Syria.
Russia and the United Arab Emirates have been bombing IS targets in Syria and Iraq since 2014.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday that Russia was targeting IS “with precision” and said that its forces would soon be joining the SDF.
The coalition launched its offensive on Tuesday, in coordination with the Syrian Arab Coalition (SAC), a coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces that includes the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.
The coalition has taken control of the border town of Tal Abyad from IS.
