Airstrikes Against ISIL Continue in Iraq, Syria
From a U.S. Central Command News Release
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 23, 2014 – U.S. military forces continued to attack terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria yesterday and today, using fighter and bomber aircraft to conduct six airstrikes, U.S. Central Command officials reported.
Separately, U.S. and partner nation military forces conducted nine airstrikes in Iraq yesterday and today using fighter, attack and remotely piloted aircraft against ISIL terrorists.
In Syria, four airstrikes near Kobani destroyed ISIL fighting positions, an ISIL vehicle, and an ISIL command and control center. East of Dawr Az Zawr, two airstrikes destroyed ISIL oil holding tanks, Centcom officials said.
In Iraq, four airstrikes south of the Mosul Dam struck four small ISIL units and destroyed an ISIL vehicle. South of Bayji, an airstrike destroyed an ISIL fighting position. Three airstrikes south of Fallujah destroyed an ISIL building and struck a large ISIL unit. Finally, near Fallujah, an airstrike destroyed an ISIL training facility.
All aircraft departed the strike areas safely. Airstrike assessments are based on initial reports.
The strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to eliminate the terrorist group ISIL and the threat they pose to Iraq, the region and the wider international community. The destruction of ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq further limits the terrorist group’s ability to project power and conduct operations, Centcom officials said.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Members of an EMS crew were injured when their ambulance flipped after clipping a school bus passing through an intersection.
The ambulance was en route to another vehicle accident and did not have a patient on board. The school bus was also not transporting students, WAVE3 reports.
“The ambulance slides over and drags off hits that power pole and then it starts smoking up,” said witness Jalen Posey.
The minor collision caused the ambulance to swerve and flip onto its side. Two EMTs were taken to the hospital.
The bus driver was not hurt during the accident.

St. Catharine Gets Past UPIKE Volleyball Despite Late Close Calls
ST. CATHARINE, Ky. -- It was anybody’s match to control in the second and third sets, but ultimately St. Catharine came out on top, winning 26-24 and 25-23 in the decisive sets to beat the University of Pikeville volleyball team on Thursday at Lourdes Hall.
A day after the Bears had one of their worst offensive showings of the season, they came back with a new level of intensity against the Mid-South Conference’s most improved team. The Patriots, receiving votes in the NAIA Coaches’ Top-25 Poll, had to put up with UPIKE’s Sydney Hall tallying nine kills at a .300 clip and Connor Cook and Rachel Murphy each adding six at .087 and .357, respectively.
As a team, UPIKE finished with a .167 hitting percentage, but even with so much going right St. Catharine was a little better.
It started out great for the Patriots (22-8, 8-3 MSC) in the first set, grabbing a 25-16 win, giving them the momentum to finish out two close set wins behind a near .300 team hitting percentage. Allie Southard was St. Catharine’s best, hitting 10 kills at a .529 percentage, while Jodie Klein kept rallies going with a match-high 17 digs.
Murphy was the Bears’ digs leader with nine, followed by eight from Caitlynn Pfaadt. Cook and Hall both sent back a block and Sydney Morris handed out 17 assists, but 11 service errors and four ball-handling errors helped prove the difference for St. Catharine to come out with the win
