Syria’s opposition National Coalition on Tuesday welcomed US-led air strikes against the Islamic State group, but urged sustained pressure on President Bashar Assad’s government.

“Tonight, the international community has joined our fight against ISIS in Syria,” Coalition president Hadi al-Bahra said, using an alternative acronym for the jihadist group.

“We are calling on all our partners to maintain pressure on the Assad regime,” he added in a statement.
