Australia contributes to the international coalition led by the US in the fight against the IS with six F/A-18 Hornet fighter aircraft, a KC-30A aerial refuelling tanker aircraft and an E-7A Wedgetail twin-engine early warning and control aircraft. It has also deployed 780 soldiers, including 80 special forces troops.

The Prime Minister and commander of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Haider al-Abadi, has vowed to oust the IS from Iraq this year, as the group's last stronghold is Mosul, the second largest city in the country that has been under its control since June 2014. The terrorist group was previously expelled from the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in central Iraq.
