‘A dozen’ Americans fighting with IS


WASHINGTON D.C.: The United States believes about “a dozen” Americans are fighting with Islamic State (IS) extremists in Iraq and Syria, a Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday (Friday in Manila). There are about 100 US nationals “operating inside of Syria” but it was unclear which rebel groups they were associated with, spokesman Colonel Steven Warren said. “We believe there are maybe a dozen that are with ISIL [IS militants],” he said.
