U.S. Navy jets begin sorties against IS in Syria from MediterraneanBy Karolina Tagaris ABOARD USS HARRY S. TRUMAN (Reuters) – A U.S. naval strike force led by aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman began sorties on May 3 against Islamic State in Syria, continuing missions by a U.S.-led coalition against the militants. The force joined the U.S. Sixth Fleet on April 18, nearly a week after the United States, Britain and France launched air strikes targeting what Western powers said were Syrian chemical weapons installations. The Navy said it was a scheduled deployment to support coalition partners, NATO allies and U.S. national security interests.
