Damascus, Syria – The U.S. Department of Defence (Pentagon) announced that the American airstrikes against militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIL) in Iraq and Syria costs 8.3 million dollar everyday.

On Monday, the Pentagon said in updated figures that the average daily cost of the fight against IS militants has risen to $8.3 million, or a total of $580 million between August 8 and October 16.

The updated average reflects a clear increase in the intensity of the U.S.-led operations against the radical group in Iraq and Syria.

Last week, the Pentagon said that the average daily cost of the anti-IS war was $7.6 million, or a total of $424 million since August 8.
