But US actions now are the least supportive to IS they have been for many years.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Sunday that the United States was serving the interests of Islamic State by preventing the Syrian army and its allies advancing in some areas of eastern Syria.

Nasrallah said the United States was delaying the Syrian military in its battle to retake territory from Islamic State.
