The Iraqi Ministry of Defense has published a new video claiming a successful air campaign against Daesh fighters fleeing Mosul. Is it real or not?

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense (MOD) this video was taken just recently as the battle in Mosul continued to rage. It is reported that they destroyed an entire convoy of fleeing Daesh vehicles that were attempting to make their way back to al-Raqqa, Syria.

There is however, some debate on the subject. Some people are claiming that this is an older video from some of the earliest air campaigns the new Iraqi government ever conducted on their own outside of Fallujah in the mid 2000’s.
