Paris meeting of the interntional coalition to reconsider strategy towards ISIS

The strategy to adopt towards the Islamic State’s advances in Iraq and Syria will be the focus of a meeting in Paris on Tuesday of the countries of the international coalition led by the United States, whose nearly 4,000 raids in ten months have failed to stop the jihadists.

The meeting, to be attended by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, ministers and representatives of international organizations, should, according to French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, allow a “discussion of the coalition’s strategy” that currently consists of conducting raids and training Iraqi soldiers or moderate Syrian rebels for action on the ground. But the raids have had little effect on ISIS’ “truck bombs” and the military training has not prevented the defeat of the Iraqi Army in Ramadi.
