ISIS militants are changing tactics in the face of U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq, ditching conspicuous convoys in favor of motorcycles and planting their black flags on civilian homes, tribal sources and eyewitnesses say.They reported fewer militant checkpoints to weed out "apostates" and less cellphone use since the airstrikes intensified and more U.S. allies pledged to join the campaign that began in August, saying the militants had also split up to limit casualties.Tribal and local intelligence sources said an airstrike Thursday near Bashir town, 20 km south of Kirkuk, had killed two local senior ISIS leaders while they were receiving a group of militants from Syria and Mosul."Wherever they hide, people want to get rid of them because they're afraid their houses will be struck," said Obeidi, who fled to Kurdistan this summer after ISIS blew up his home.The insurgents have gone underground in their main Syrian stronghold since U.S. President Barack Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes on the group in Syria – which began earlier this week.
