iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The United States successfully carried out another airstrike late Sunday near the Iraqi city of Irbil.

U.S. military forces were targeting ISIL/ISIS vehicles that were part of a convoy attacking Peshmerga forces defending the city where U.S. personnel and citizens are located, the Defense Department said Monday.

The military's central command, or CENTCOM, says all aircraft exited the strike zone safely.
