Iraq has put F-16 warplanes acquired from the United States into action against ISIS for the first time, the commander of the air force said Sunday.Amin told the news conference that the F-16 strikes had taken place in Salaheddin and Kirkuk provinces, north of Baghdad.F-16 jets are much more sophisticated than other aircraft in Baghdad's arsenal and will boost Iraq's capacity for air strikes, which are currently carried out by ageing Sukhoi Su-25 jets, Cessna Caravan turboprop aircraft and various helicopters.
