US President Barack Obama on June 14 said the Islamic State group was losing ground in Iraq and Syria, and that the number of foreign fighters joining the extremists was plummeting.

ISIL continues to lose ground in Syria as well," Obama said after a meeting of the National Security Council on the fight against the jihadist group. "In short, our coalition continues to be on offense. ISIL is on defense," Obama said, using an alternate acronym for the group.
