Pentagon: Iraq operations cost $560 million so far story image

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon says that military operations in Iraq have cost more than $560 million so far, including the surveillance flights and airstrikes that began on June 16.

Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, says the average daily cost for the operations has been $7.5 million, with the cost starting lower when the humanitarian aid flights began and increasing as the military strikes escalated.

To date the military has conducted about 106 airstrikes against Islamic State militants who have stormed across Iraq, taking control of a large swath of the west and north.

Kirby says the costs are being paid for through the 2014 overseas contingency fund. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has said he has adequate funds for the operation through this fiscal year.
