KABOOM! 'Islamic State-infested' island wiped out by 40 tonnes of explosives

US warplanes have dropped 40 tonnes of explosives on an island in northern Iraq to annihilate an Islamic State hideout.

F-15 and F-35 fighter jets were used in the joint operation between US-led coalition forces and the Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service, which targeted Qanus Island in the Tigris River.

Footage of the attack on IS - also known as Daesh and ISIS - was released by the coalition in a tweet, saying: "Here's what it looks like when @USAFCENT #F15 and #F35 jets drop 36,000 Kg of bombs on a Daesh infested island."
It showed aerial views of the mile-and-a-half-long island before, during and after its obliteration.
The island lit up as several dozens of bombs were dropped in quick succession, creating large explosions which unleashed huge plumes of fire and smoke into the sky.
Soldiers and military vehicles could also be seen on the ground, against the backdrop of the airstrikes.
Based on the footage, the island did not appear to be inhabited, but areas on either side of the river, on the mainland, appeared to be settled. It is unclear if civilians were moved before the attack.
