According to the Times, Kurdish television reported the bombings Thursday night.

ABC News reported that the U.S. is sending cargo planes with humanitarian supplies to drop to Iraqi citizens trapped in the towns seized by the insurgents.

The Pentagon also denied the reports of air drops.

The White House said earlier on Thursday that President Obama was considering strikes to aid the thousands trapped by the ISIS insurgents.
