The Canadian Forces conducted two more airstrikes against ISIS Tuesday, hitting three positions, according to the Department of National Defence.

The airstrikes were in the vicinity of Ramadi, Iraq, and were in support of Iraqi security forces operations, according to information on the department’s website.

Canadian fighter jets are in the region as part of Operation Impact – the Canadian Forces contribution to the multinational coalition against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

There have been eight airstrikes so far in November, though Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has repeatedly reiterated his election commitment to withdraw Canadian fighter jets from the region by March. However, he has also pledged to increase training for local fighters.
