Tillerson raises alarm at meeting of coalition fighting ISIS

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought on Tuesday to refocus the U.S.-led coalition charged with fighting the Islamic State group on its mission amid a series of confrontations in the region.

"The end of major combat operations does not mean we have achieved the enduring defeat of ISIS," Tillerson said at a meeting of coalition members in Kuwait.

"ISIS remains a serious threat to the stability of the region, our homelands and other parts of the globe," he added. "Without continued attention and support from coalition members, we risk the return of extremist groups like ISIS in liberated areas of Iraq and Syria and their spread to new locations."

He also announced that the U.S. would provide an additional $200 million to stabilization and recovery efforts in parts of Syria liberated from ISIS control.

1. "...our homelands..."

I'm sure Arab members of the coalition looked at each other and rolled their eyes, when he said that!
