The United States is hunting for ISIS targets in Syria.
The U.S. is now flying its first surveillance flights over Syria. There are nearly 500 more Americans troops en route to Iraq, bringing the president's total to 1700. And the U.S. has already conducted 154 strikes in Iraq.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration's strategy includes "many different things that one doesn't think of normally in context of war."
"What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation," Kerry told CNN's Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. "It's going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it's a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts."
