ISIS militants have been under increasing pressure in Syria not only by U.S. led coalition forces, but also by Syrian government forces, so the terrorist group decided to withdraw a large number of its forces to the Iraq border. It used eleven busses to evacuate hundreds of fighters and civilians, but the convoy was cut off and left stranded in the Syrian Desert. This left it at the mercy of coalition aircraft that started methodically picking off ISIS fighters that strayed too far from the convoy.
Since there were women and children in the convoy itself it has not been attacked directly, but over forty ISIS vehicles, including at least one tank that attempted to come to the aid of the convoy have been destroyed by Coalition fighters.
