The United States and Arab allies launched strikes from the air and sea against Islamic State militants in Syria today, opening a new front in the battle against the brutal extremist group.

The US Central Command said in a statement that Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates had joined Washington in carrying out the strikes.

The coalition conducted 14 strikes against IS targets in Syria.

The strikes "destroyed or damaged" multiple targets in the militants' northern stronghold and near the border with Iraq including IS fighter positions, training compounds, command centres and armed vehicles.
