Pentagon: Air strikes on Islamic State in Syria 'successful'

US air strikes on Islamic State militants were successful and will continue "for quite some time", a Pentagon spokesman has said.

Rear Admiral John Kirby told ABC's Good Morning America that the strikes had managed to knock out command and control facilities, supply depots and training areas.

He also revealed that some of the targets related to known plots by an al-Qaeda-affiliated group against the US.
