Four strikes in three cities in Syria wounded two fighters, hit a tactical unit and destroyed two Islamic State buildings, the U.S.-led coalition said in a statement released early Tuesday.

In Iraq, 19 strikes in nine different cities destroyed command centers, several fighting positions and vehicles, among other targets, the coalition said.
