NEW YORK, November 13. /TASS/. US President Barak Obama asked to reconsider American strategy in fight against Islamic State terrorist group militants in Syria, the CNN television broadcaster says.
According to CNN, four meetings of the Obama’s national security team were held last week in the White House, one of which was chaired by the president himself. These meetings, according to CNN source, were "driven to a large degree how the US Syria strategy fits into its ISIS strategy."
The broadcaster believes that Obama decided to reconsider policy towards ISIS in Syria after Washington had realized, according to the CNN conclusion, that the militants cannot be defeated without the removal of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad.
“The review is a tacit admission that the initial strategy of trying to confront ISIS first in Iraq and then take the group's fighters on in Syria, without also focusing on the removal of al-Assad, was a miscalculation,” CNN says.
American aviation started to bombard ISIS positions in Iraq on August 8, and on September 23 — in Syria.
French, British, Australian, Belgian, Danish and Dutch air jets take part in military operations together with the US Air Forces, and joint military operations in Syria are carried out by the US, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan and Bahrein air forces.
