According to a US official, US President Barack Obama has authorized surveillance flights over Syria as the Islamic State militants continue to gain ground in the nation which is already wrecked by war.

These flights are seen as a precursor of possible U.S. air strikes against IS in Syria which could begin at any point, the US official clarified.
