(IraqiNews.com) CIA director John Brennan said on Sunday, that ISIS group has lost momentum in Iraq and Syria, noting that the group no longer progresses like it did before, considering that Iran not an ally in the war against ISIS.
Brennan said on ‘Fox News Sunday’ that, “Clearly, ISIS momentum inside of Iraq and Syria has been blunted and it has been stopped,” noting that, “The United States and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against ISIS since last summer, and Iraqi forces have recently regained key strategic cities from the militants.
“Our working with the Iraqis and the Iraqis now trying to push back against it, it is having some great, I think, progress,” he continued.
Brennan said that although the United States and Iran are fighting the extremist group, but he did not consider Iran an ally in this fight. “Iran realizes it will face enormous repercussions and consequences if it decides to proceed with the manufacture of nuclear weapons efforts.”
