The campaign to systematically destroy the ISIS
organization, accomplished mainly through air strikes and in coordination with
Iraqi, Peshmerga, and coalition ground forces, will take years, according to
Joint Staff Operations Director Army Lt. Gen. William Mayville.
The F-22 Raptor made its combat debut
in Syria Monday night striking ISIS targets alongside US F-15Es, F-16s, B-1
bombers, F/A-18s, and unidentified “drones,” confirmed Joint Staff Director of Operations Army Lt. Gen.
William Mayville Tuesday.
Monday's military action against ISIS targets in Syria represents a coalition effort of at least five Syrian neighbors acting in concert with the United States, and enjoys bipartisan support from Congress, President Obama told the nation on Tuesday morning.
