Islamic Nations Established a New Coalition against ''Islamic State''

34 mainly Islamic nations have created a new military alliance to fight against extremists in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt and Afghanistan, Saudi Defence Minister Mohammed bin Salman announced.

A joint operations centre will be established in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.  

Countries from Asia, Africa and the Arab world are involved in the alliance but Saudi Arabia's main regional rival Iran is not, BBC reports, referring to state media.

The decision was made due to the international pressure for Gulf Arab states to do more in the fight against "Islamic State".

It is also stated that Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria are not in the coalition as well.
