U.S. President Barack Obama said Tuesday that destroying ISIS remains his "top priority" at a time when the extremist group continues to lose ground in Iraq and Syria.Washington has led an international coalition staging airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq since September 2014, parallel to operations by the Syrian government and its ally Russia.The operation 75 miles (120 kilometers) southwest of Palmyra helped secure the government's retaking of that ancient city last week after ISIS held it for 10 months, destroying important archaeological sites and executing 280 people.
