The Iraqi air force says has launched deadly strikes against Daesh positions in Syria as both neighboring countries step up efforts to get rid of the Takfiri terror group's remnants.

The latest attacks show that IS is still considered a threat to Iraqi security, months after the Iraqi prime minister Haider al-Abadi declared total victory and Raqqa, the Syrian "capital" of IS, fell to Kurdish and American forces.
