U.S. military says Gulf states, Jordan partnered against Islamic State

The U.S. military said on Tuesday its partners in air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria included Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. In a CENTCOM statement, it added the U.S. military had taken action to disrupt “imminent attack” against the U.S. and Western interests by “seasoned al Qaeda veterans” who had established a safe haven in Syria. “These strikes were undertaken only by U.S. assets,” it said.
