US President Barack Obama said that Washington is going to have to continue to strengthen global coalition against the Daesh terrprist group.
The United States will continue to enhance the anti-Islamic State coalition, including its air campaign and assistance to local partners, US President Barack Obama said on Monday.
“We are going to have to continue to strengthen our global coalition against ISIL, whereas it’s an air campaign, support for local partners, cutting off ISIL financing, preventing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters, working with partners to counter ISIL’s bankrupt nihilistic ideology,” Obama said.
The coalition of more than 60 nations has been carrying out airstrikes against Daesh targets in Syria and Iraq since 2014. In February, the allies opened a third front against the terrorist group in Libya.The Islamic State, also known as Daesh, has been designated as a terrorist organization and outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries. The infamous group has seized large areas in Syria and Iraq and declared a caliphate there.
