US President Barack Obama has defended his strategy to combat Islamic State (Isis) in Syria and Iraq in the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Paris. Speaking at the G20 meeting in Antalya, Turkey, he said a US-led ground invasion of Syria would be a "mistake" and accused critics of his strategy of lacking a "specific plan" to combat the militant group.

Last month the Pentagon said it would deploy less than 50 special operations forces to Syria to advise and assist moderate rebels combating Isis, but the administration has come under pressure to do more in the wake of the attacks in the French capital which killed 129 people on 13 November.


Obama asserted that air strikes by the US-led coalition have been effective in taking out key members of the Isis leadership and defended his use of the term "contained" to refer to the threat of the jihadist group.

"When I said that we are containing their spread in Iraq and Syria ? in fact, they control less territory than they did last year," he was quoted as saying by the Guardian newspaper.

"The more we shrink that territory, the less they can pretend they are somehow a functioning state and the more it becomes apparent that they are simply a network of brutal killers. That allows us to reduce the flow of foreign fighters, which over time will lessen the numbers of terrorists who can potentially carry out terrible acts like they did in Paris."
