Islamic State’s control over Iraq and Syria has shrunk due to better intelligence and equipment among local forces, a senior US official has said.

“We are doing precision strikes in Mosul almost every day,” Brett McGurk, US President Barack Obama’s special envoy in the fight against the Islamic State group said. “There is constant synchronized pressure.”

The IS controls the cities of Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria and is proving a potent threat abroad, claiming credit for major attacks in Paris in November and Brussels in March.
