US Secretary of State John Kerry said the international coalition's fight against the Islamic State may take years, however, months of airstrikes had damaged the militant group's capabilities.

Iran, not a member of the coalition, is said to have carried out air strikes on IS in Iraq this week.

The Pentagon stressed there had been no coordination with the Iranians on any such air strikes.

IS control large areas of Syria and Iraq, imposing a rigid version of Sunni Islam and persecuting or killing non-believers.’
