The daily concluded its comments by saying, "The need of the hour is to revisit the understanding reached between the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and the US Secretary of State John Kerry to root out the menace, as they threaten the entire region. The intention of the ISIS is to alter the status quo of the Middle East and plunge it into chaos and uncertainty. This has to be checked and the best way to do is to boost the national army of Iraq and aid the Kurds and other nationalist groups. But the bastion of the ISIS lies in Syria and unless they are routed out from there, it would be too difficult to flush them out from Iraq. Senior US general Martin Dempsey?s plea that action should begin against their hideouts in Syria is strategically correct." Rasha
