Washington, June 14 (IBNS) US President Barack Obama on Tuesday said militant group ISIL has lost nearly half of the populated territory it once controlled in Iraq and will continue to loose more.

"ISIL has now lost nearly half of the populated territory it once controlled in Iraq—and it will lose more," Obama said.

"We’ve taken out more than 120 top ISIL leaders & commanders Our message is clear: If you target America & our allies, you will not be safe," he said.

He said the victims of the attack are not alone.

"They are not alone. The American people, our allies, friends, people all over the world stand with them," the US President said.

Sending out a strong message, he said: "We have to make it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on weapons of war that let them kill dozens."

He urged the nation to be tough on terrorism.

"Be tough on terrorism. Stop making it easy as possible for terrorists to buy assault weapons. Reinstate the assault weapons ban," Obama said.

The suspected man, who was identified as Omar Mateen, wielding an assault-type rifle and a handgun, took hostages and opened fire inside the Pulse nightclub.

According to reports, Mateen called 911 around the time of the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mention the Boston bombers, according to a U.S. official.
