US strikes against Islamic State while winning more pledges

US and Arab air forces struck Islamic State fighters in Syria for a third day today, as Washington won further pledges of military support for its battle against the radical group in neighbouring Iraq.

US Central Command said Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar have participated in or supported strikes against Islamic State targets since the opening day of the campaign in Syria on Tuesday.

The Netherlands said it would deploy six warplanes for the campaign in Iraq, where the United States has carried out air strikes since early August, and Belgium is set to offer the same number. Australia will also send eight fighter jets.

France, which has already joined the US strikes on Iraq, suggested it might consider joining the air campaign in Syria.
