Germany calls for ‘special purpose’ global alliance against ISIS

Germany is calling for a temporary “special purpose” alliance that will unite major global powers, including the US and Russia, in battle against a common enemy – the Islamic State terror group running wild in Iraq and Syria.

Everyone must take part in the new global alliance, Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said in an interview with the Bild newspaper, because any disagreements between actors engaging ISIS only strengthens terrorist positions.
