Airstrikes in Syria

Major developments last night. It was quite surprising to read about the UAE and Egypt conducting airstrikes in Libya recently. It is also astonishing to see this new coalition of the US and five neighboring countries hitting ISIS.

And while everyone was focused on ISIS, Obama also struck against a different rebel group near Aleppo.

A postscript about ISIS. It seems only Obama is still using the term ISIL, only the Economist is using the term IS, and the rest of the world is using the term ISIS.
