The Obama administration has tapped retired Marine Gen. John Allen to coordinate the international effort against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Gen. Allen will organize the efforts of nearly 40 countries around the world, according to the report. Allen’s selection to coordinate the effort is a step by the U.S. and its allies to ramp up their fight against the ISIS militant group.
