U.S.-led coalition forces in Iraq and Syria carried out a large-scale attack on Syria's Omar oil field as part of its mission to target ISIS's ability to generate money, a coalition spokesman said Thursday.Coalition spokesman Col. Steven Warren said the attack hit 26 targets, making it one of the largest set of strikes since launching the air campaign last year.The report also noted that while most of the attacks happened in Iraq and Syria, ISIS attacks in Nigeria during the third quarter yielded a higher death toll than those recorded in Syria, and had the highest average fatalities per attack of any of the group's self-declared states.
