US warship strikes ISIS from eastern Mediterranean – Navy

The US Navy says it has conducted strikes against Islamic State targets from an aircraft carrier in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

The George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group “resumed strike missions in support of Operation Inherent Resolve,” the Navy said in a news release.

The carrier entered the Mediterranean on June 5 and had previously conducted Operation Inherent Resolve strikes from the eastern Mediterranean in early March, according to the Navy.

“We are resuming a relentless pursuit of ISIS targets, while reinforcing our commitment to partners and allies in the US 6th Fleet area of operations,” said Rear Admiral Kenneth Whitesell, commander of Carrier Strike Group 2.
