Video Captures Coalition Airstrike on Islamic State Target — Look What It Sends Flying Into the Air

"It was a good strike."

The U.S. Defense Department released video footage Friday of a Jan. 11 Coalition airstrike on an Islamic State cash depot near Mosul, Iraq.

Moments after the strike on the cash distribution center, clouds of paper cash can be seen fluttering in the air.

"It was a good strike. And we estimate that it served to deprive ISIL of millions of dollars," Gen. Lloyd Austin, head of the U.S. Central Command, told CNN.

"And combined with all of the other strikes that we've done on ISIL's gas and oil production and distribution capabilities and strikes against his economic infrastructure and the various sources of revenue, you can bet that [it] is feeling the strain on his checkbook," he added.
