Joint Chiefs Chair: Military Pressure, Intelligence Sharing Key to ISIL’s Defeat

The U.S. Department of Defense  reports that “Military pressure and intelligence sharing are two key elements in defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a recent interview.”   

“‘I think the attack in Nice, France, though, just highlights the need to put pressure on ISIL wherever they are,’ Dunford told reporters on his plane after concluding a three-day visit to Afghanistan . The U.S. military is targeting ISIL across Iraq, Syria ‘and elsewhere, wherever they exist,’ he said.”  

“Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford spoke July 17 in the wake of the July 14 terrorist attack in Nice, in which more than 80 people were killed and scores of others were injured.”
