WASHINGTON: The US will send special forces to Iraq and Syria to intensify fight against dreaded militant group Islamic State, US defense secretary Ashton Carter has said, while calling on international community to step up the pace of its contributions to the fight.
"In full coordination with the government of Iraq, we're deploying a specialised expedition targeting force to assist Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces and put even more pressure on ISIS," Carter said yesterday in his appearance before the House Armed Services Committee.
"These special operators will, over time, be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence and capture ISIS leaders," Carter said.
The chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, general Joseph Dunford, also testified before the Congressional Armed Services Committee.
Carter said the US forces will also be in a position to conduct unilateral operations in Syria.

USA should demand that India and Japan deploy troops in Syria and Iraq
president obama was awarded nobel peace prize without proving any credentials by the nobel foundation in anticipation that his leadership will bring peace in world ,now what is happening all over the world no peace but war .there is an atmosphere of insecurity and fear . nations are spending more on warfare rather than on peace measures
The USA even wants to destroy whole of Iraq whatever is left. The ISIS creation is also same like 9/11 drama. God only knows where USA's destruction will end.
For over a year, the US bombers could not find the huge convoys of IS oil tankers smoothly plying between Syria/Turkey. Only Putin could find them and interrupt the flow of IS oil trade.
It must be joint operation with rest of the world
