Education Minister Naftali Bennett called for ground troops in Syria to fight Islamic State, in an address to The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Bennett said the world is "not committed enough" to fighting IS, and asserted that drones and a few missiles are not enough to defeat the terror group.

"The world needs to go on the offensive," he stated, pointing to Israel's Operation Defensive Shield in 2002 as a model for how terrorism can be defeated.
