THE Pentagon says US and partners have begun air strikes in Syria.
A statement from a Pentagon official said the decision to strike was made earlier today and “partner nation forces” were also involved in the action.
“I can confirm that US military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles,” a Pentagon official said.
The Arab countries taking part are reportedly Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Qatar.
