US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Friday the U.S.-led coalition was now encircling ISIS fighters in their strongholds in a tactical shift before starting a military campaign to destroy them.

Also speaking at the Pentagon on Friday, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford, said strikes against Syrian government-backed fighters this week were a “force protection measure,” and would not happen again if US forces are not threatened.
