By: Stephen Losey, June 14, 2017 (Photo Credit: Senior Airman Joshua Hoskins/Air Force)The U.S.-led coalition waging the air war against the Islamic State released 4,374 weapons in Iraq and Syria in May ā€” by far the most of any month since the war began. 
The pace of airstrikes under Operation Inherent Resolve has grown increasingly aggressive throughout 2017. In January, the coalition dropped 3,600 weapons, which set a new record, according to statistics posted online by U.S. Air Forces Central Command. In March, the number of weapons released surpassed even that and reached 3,878, before dropping down slightly to 3,274 in April.
