AhlulBayt News Agency - The U.S. Lt. Gen. Charles Brown Jr. revealed, that the U.S. Air Force pulled its Lancer B-1 bombers from the operations carried out by Washington against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Brown told reporters at the Pentagon via a video link “The fleet of B-1 Lancer bombers had been sent back to the United States from their deployment in the Mideast,” adding that, “The four-engine bombers are due for upgrades to their cockpits, a process that will keep the jets stateside for an undetermined amount of time.”

Brown also pointed out, “The air campaign against ISIS will continue and the B-1s will likely be part of it again,” indicating that, “Other U.S. and coalition aircraft would pick up the B-1s’ missions during the upgrades.”
