The White House said, “The new target list will include Islamic State’s “leadership, logistical and operational capability,” as well as an attempt to “deny it sanctuary and resources to plan, prepare and execute attacks.”

The US military has already launched more than 150 air strikes in Iraq in the past month to halt Islamic State advances.
