US defense chief says coalition will put boots on ground in Syria, Iraq
US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that the US-led coalition will put boots on the ground to fight against Daesh terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
Carter said in an interview with CNBC that there would be boots on the ground as part of the strategy to fight Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
"We're doing more, because we need to do more because we need to defeat ISIL [Daesh]," Carter told CNBC. "I'm confident we will, but I want to accelerate that process."
He also said that the US' allies in the fight against Daesh "can do more," adding that the terrorist group needs to be defeated in the Iraqi Mosul and it's de facto capital in Syria's Raqqa.
