The United States is preparing to ramp up its military campaign against the Daesh terrorist group, by increasing the number of Special Operations forces in Syria and deploying Apache helicopter gunships to the battlefield in Iraq, officials say.

The goal would be to advise and assist the Iraqi security forces and US-backed militant units in Syria fighting the terrorist organization, the New York Times reported.
