Canadian forces launched their first airstrikes on ISIS targets in northern Iraq on Sunday, government officials have confirmed.

Two Canadian CF-18 fighter jets dropped 500-pound laser-guided missiles near the city of Fallujah during a mission that lasted approximately four hours.

In a statement, Defence Minister Rob Nicholson said the mission included air-to-air re-fueling from Canada’s Polaris aircraft. All aircraft returned safely to their base, the minister said, adding assessment of damage is ongoing.
