Airstrikes haven’t slowed recruiting

Military Action

Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. Kirby says ISIS is still able to recruit in large numbers:

They are facing some attrition through these operations not just from the air but from the ground. But there’s no question that they still possess the ability to reconstitute their manpower and that’s just an indication of the strength of their ideology right now, which is why we’re working hard to counter that, and the fact that this is going to be a long struggle.

He confirms ISIS personnel have been targeted and killed, along with vehicles and installations.
