FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CJTF-OIR Strike Summary Report, May 2021
SOUTHWEST ASIA – Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its
partners continue to target and pursue the enduring defeat of Daesh. CJTF-OIR and  partner forces have liberated nearly 110,000 square kilometers (42,471 square miles) from Daesh. As a result, 7.7 million people no longer live under Daesh oppression. CJTF-OIR remains committed to the enduring defeat of Daesh to improve conditions for peace and stability in the region and to protect all our homelands from the Daesh terrorist threat.

Strike Summary
Between May 1 and May 31 2021, CJTF-OIR conducted a total of 6 strikes consisting of 18 engagements in Iraq and Syria.

In Iraq, CJTF-OIR conducted 4 strikes against Daesh targets consisting of 9 engagements. This resulted in 3 Enemy Killed in Action, 10 Bed Down Locations destroyed, and 2 Tunnels destroyed.

In Syria, CJTF-OIR conducted 2 strikes against Daesh targets consisting of 9 engagements.

This CJTF-OIR strike release contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotarywing, or remotely piloted aircraft, rocket propelled artillery and ground-based tactical artillery. A strike, as defined in the CJTF-OIR release, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative effect in that location. For example, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone Daesh vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of Daesh-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined.

CJTF-OIR does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. The information used to compile the daily strike releases is based on ‘Z’ or Greenwich Mean Time.
