"The Pentagon has created a new medal to honor the thousands of U.S. troops who have deployed to Iraq or Syria to support operations against Islamic State militants.
The Operation Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal will be awarded to service members who have deployed to Iraq or Syria or its airspace or territorial waters since June 15, 2014, a defense official said."


Necessary? Should all this just fall under an Overseas Service Ribbon? Do we need more medals?

I would think either the Armed Forces Expeditionary or the GWOT Expeditionary would cover it. Yes, we have enough medals.
