According to US Air Forces Central Command data, the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Afghanistan has dropped 5,075 bombs during close-air-support, escort, or interdiction operations in August alone. That total was the highest of any month during the three-year campaign against the terrorist group. Each of first eight months of 2017 has exceeded the amount of bombs dropped in any other month of the campaign. The number of bombs released through the first eight months of 2017 comes in at 32,801, surpassing the number of bombs dropped through all of last year, which was the previous annual high for the campaign.
