US President Barack Obama plans to send 250 more military personnel to Syria, increasing the U.S. presence on the ground there to about 300 troops to help fight Islamic State militants.

The deployment will come on top of 50 special operations forces whom Obama deployed to Syria last year.

Meanwhile, the US President made a plea yesterday, for warring parties in Syria to return to peace talks and "reinstate" a ceasefire.

This was said, as he defended a refusal to establish a safe zone in the country.
