IS Continues Attacks Despite 6,000 Airstrikes

  • Zlatica Hoke

One year ago (on August 8, 2014), the United States started to bomb Islamic State targets in Iraq.  Since then, the U.S.-led coalition has hit the militant group in Iraq and Syria with more than 6,000 airstrikes. Even though the group has lost some territory, it has shown tough resilience and continues to pose a threat to vulnerable communities in the region, most recently in Turkish areas close to the Syrian border. VOA's Zlatica Hoke has this report.
