Americans dropping 'cyber bombs' on ISIS

The United States military is dropping "cyber bombs" on the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group for the first time as part of a stepped-up coordinated effort that has put increasing pressure on the militant group, Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said on Tuesday, according to Reuters

"Those guys are under enormous pressure. Every time we have gone after one of their defended positions over the last six months, we have defeated them. They have left, they have retreated," Work was quoted as having told reporters on a military plane en route to a Colorado air base.
