Cost of ISIS war passes $2 billion mark

The cost of U.S. military operations against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has surpassed the $2 billion mark.

The figure is based on the Pentagon’s cost update from last month, provided to The Hill by Defense Department spokesman Bill Urban.

“As of Mar. 26, 2015, the total cost of operations related to ISIL since kinetic operations started on Aug. 8, 2014, is $1.96 billion and the average daily cost is $8.5 million,” Urban said Thursday, using an alternate name for the terrorist group.
