US 'intensifying' military campaign against Isis in Syria: Obama
July 7 , 2015
The US-led military coalition is “intensifying” its anti-Isis campaign in Syria, US president Barack Obama has said.
Though he ruled out sending additional US troops, he said that America would boost its support for the moderate Syrian opposition.
Obama said that an “effective partner” was needed on the ground to defeat Islamic State (Isis).
The president’s remarks come after intense US-led bombing raids on Isis targets in Raqqa, the unofficial capital of the jihadi fighters in Syria.
