Just another day at the office. ISIS wants to die for Allah, we're happy to help them out.

Then there's this:

BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.S.-led coalition says American warplanes have dropped 36,000 kilograms (40 tons) of bombs on an Island in the Tigris River “infested” with members of the Islamic State group.

The coalition said F15 and F35 warplanes took part in the bombing on Qanus Island in the central province of Salaheddine, north of the capital Baghdad.

Tuesday’s attack is part of operations carried out by Iraqi forces and the U.S.-led coalition against IS, which was defeated in Iraq in 2017.

IS sleeper cells have since carried out deadly bombings in Iraq.

IS controlled large swathes of Syria and Iraq where they declared a caliphate in 2014.
That means they issued a statement. An F-15E has a payload of 23,000 pounds. You can look up their load out.
