(CNN) - President Barack Obama will likely focus most of his attention on terrorism as he addresses the UN General Assembly on Wednesday morning. The remarks come amid military strikes against ISIS in Syria. Ahead of the UN General Assembly, Obama highlighted a coalition of countries now fighting against the Islamic State. "All of us are committed to making sure we degrade and ultimately destroy not only ISIL but also the kinds of extremist ideologies that would lead to so much bloodshed," Obama said. Five Arab countries joined the U.S. in conducting military strikes against ISIS targets in Syria early Tuesday. They hit training camps, weapons production, and command and control facilities, but the U.S. military also had some surprise targets in mind. It fired more than 40 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. The majority of those, according to the Pentagon, weren't aimed at ISIS but another extremist group, called Khorasan, thought to be actively plotting attacks on Western targets.
