Brussels: Talking about the significant impact that the anti-jihadist coalition led coalition members vowing to chart out a strategy to check the flow of foreign fighters, cut their finance support and curb their social-media influence.

According to the US State Department, the US-led anti ISIS coalition has some 62 members including Arab states. However not all of them are directly involved in launching air strikes on the ISIS.

The ISIS overran a huge swathe of territories in Iraq and Syria and established a Caliphate across the occupied areas.
