Obama says US 'intensifying' anti-IS efforts in Syria

US President Barack Obama (C) speaks following a meeting with top military officials about the military campaign against the Islamic State at the Pentagon, July 6, 2015President Barack Obama said Monday the US-led coalition battling Islamic State jihadists was “intensifying” its campaign against the group’s base in Syria, but cautioned the fight would be long. Obama addressed the media after a briefing at the Pentagon with top military brass and members of his national security team on efforts to dismantle the jihadist group, which has taken over large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria. The high-level talks came after coalition air strikes that hit the Islamic State group’s de facto capital Raqa in Syria over the weekend — some of the heaviest bombing since it began targeting the IS in Syria in September last year.
