The United States is running out of bombs to fight ISIS with overseas.

Air Force chief of staff Gen. Mark Welsh said in a statement that the Air Force is now 'expending munitions faster than we can replenish them,' as the campaign against the terrorist group is increased in Iraq and Syria.

'B-1s have dropped bombs in record numbers. F-15Es are in the fight because they are able to employ a wide range of weapons and do so with great flexibility,' Welsh said in the statement.

'We need the funding in place to ensure we're prepared for the long fight. This is a critical need.'

An Air Force official explained that the bombing campaign against the Islamist terror group has left the US Air Force with munitions depot stocks 'below the desired objective,' CNN reported.

The Air Force has requested additional funding for Hellfire missiles and is developing plans to increase weapons production to replenish its stocks more quickly, CNN reported.

However, the official told CNN that increasing the stock could take 'up to four years from time of expenditure to asset resupply.'

'The precision today's wars requires demands the right equipment and capability to achieve desired effects, the unnamed official told CNN.

'We need to ensure the necessary funding is in place to not only execute today's wars, but also tomorrow's challenges.'

The global demand for US-made missiles along with so-called smart bombs has grown tremendously since their use in the first Gulf War.

Arms makers have told US officials that they have added shifts and hired more workers in an effort to increase the needed artillery.

Islamic State's deadly attacks in Paris last month have added urgency to the US-led bombing campaign against the group in Iraq and Syria.

The campaign had resulted in 8,605 strikes at an estimated cost of around $5.2 billion as of December 2.

Meanwhile, a Saudi-led coalition including Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates and backed by Washington is carrying out a nine-month-old military campaign against Iran-backed rebels in Yemen.

Gulf states are also supplying US-made arms to rebels fighting Syria's government in that country's four-year-old war.

'It's a huge growth area for us,' said one executive with a U.S. weapons maker, who was not authorized to speak publicly.

'Everyone in the region is talking about building up supplies for five to ten years. This is going to be a long fight' against Islamic State.
