    There is more information online against the Daesh terror group (outlawed in numerous countries) than content that supports it, the US Department of State said in a press release on the efforts the US-led coalition to defeat Daesh.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The release noted that increasing the resistance to Daesh propaganda on the internet is vital to the efforts of the US-led coalition against the terror group.

    "Counter ISIS [Daesh] content is now more prevalent online and pro-ISIS content is declining in open forum social media channels," the release stated.

    The 68-member coalition against Daesh, which was developed in 2014, is currently holding a ministerial meeting in Washington, DC.
