'Too early` to say if US beating Islamic State: Obama

Washington: President Barack Obama admitted Wednesday that it was too early to say whether a US-led military coalition has the upper hand against the Islamic State jihadist group in Iraq and Syria.

"I think it`s too early to say whether we are winning because as I said at the outset of the ISIL campaign, this is going to be a long-term plan," he said, warning of a lengthy campaign ahead.
