 The U.S.-led coalition said they carried out a series of 16 airstrikes Saturday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, according to Agence France-Presse. 

 
“The significant airstrikes tonight were executed to deny Daesh (ISIS) the ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq,” spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Gilleran said in a coalition statement.
 
“This was one of the largest deliberate engagements we have conducted to date in Syria and it will have debilitating effects on Daesh’s ability to move from Raqqa,” Gilleran added. 
 
Coalition forces “successfully engaged multiple targets” throughout Raqqa -- the extremists’ de facto capital -- the statement said, destroying ISIS structures and transit routes.
 
The strikes “have severely constricted terrorist freedom of movement,” it added.
 
The announcement came after ISIS released a video showing teenage members executing 25 Syrian soldiers in an amphitheater in the ancient ruins of Palmyra.
