US Central Command released videos from airstrikes conducted Sunday against targets in the Iraq-Syria border region. According to the Department of Defense, the airstrikes were carried out to disrupt operations of Iraqi Popular Mobilization Force militias the US believed were responsible for drone-based attacks on US forces and interests in Iraq. 

CENTCOM described the target in the first video as a facility used for logistical support and the transfer of advanced conventional weapons, including drones. In the video, the target is on the far right-hand side of the picture. 

CENTCOM described the second video as a strike on a drone facility. As the target building is the only major structure in the video, it’s pretty easy to track.

The third video’s target building is a weapons depot, according to CENTCOM. The structures appear to be part of a well-established base, and at the bottom of the screen, there are several tractor-trailers. Keep your eyes on a building on the right-hand side of the screen that looks as if it has a circular pit in the courtyard.
