The United States admitted that the Islamic State is the most dangerous group it has faced in recent years and warned that the Middle East faces a long-term battle to defeat it.


Pentagon chiefs said the jihadist group could be eradicated if local Sunni communities reject it and regional powers unite to fight it, but only if the battle is taken into Syria and not just Iraq.


Speaking after the US military said it had already carried out a failed hostage rescue mission inside Syria, and against the backdrop of new air strikes in Iraq, they warned IS poses a considerable threat.
