    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group has carried out airstrikes against the Daesh jihadist group in Iraq from the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, US 6th Fleet Commander Vice Adm. James Foggo said in a press release on Tuesday.

    "As demonstrated by Truman, and now Ike [Eisenhower], a carrier strike group can effectively counter ISIL [Islamic State], reassure our allies and deter adversaries all from the Eastern Mediterranean," Foggo stated.
