War Zone {Video} US Attack Syria Terrorist Group IS Jihadists

The wave of strikes came less than two weeks after Obama warned that he had approved an expansion of the campaign against the Islamic State group to include action in Syria.

“I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Obama said on September 10 in a speech to the natio.

“This is a core principle of my presidency: if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”

US and Arab warplanes hammered Islamic State militants in eastern Syria early Tuesday, opening a new front in the fight against the jihadist group, defense officials said.

The US-led air assault in Syria marks a turning point in the war against the IS group, as the administration of US President Barack Obama had long been reluctant to intervene in Syria’s raging civil war.

But Washington concluded it had to act and convinced Arab allies to join in, amid fears IS fighters could wreak havoc across the region and eventually stage terror attacks in Europe or the United States if left unchecked.

“I can confirm that US military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL (Islamic State group) terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.
