‘IS group is in a fragile position,’ French defence minister tells FRANCE 24

Daesh is in a very fragile position but we must remain very careful,” French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, using an alternative name for the IS group.  Le Drian called on Russia to “clarify” its position on Syria, and urged the military to focus its airstrikes on Islamic State group targets instead of on Syrian rebel forces, which he said were prone to fighting the IS group.
