UK Parliament Allows Airstrikes on ISIS in Syria; UK Already Bombs ISIS in Iraq,Now to Hit Syria

British lawmakers today (December 2, 2015) voted to launch bombing raids against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)  extremists in Syria, the Euro News website reports.

After more than 10 hours of debate, members of parliament voted 397 to 223 to support Prime Minister David Cameron's case that the country needs to do more to help destroy the radical Muslim militants who are plotting against the United Kingdom.

British Tornado bombers could leave an airbase they use in Cyprus within hours to launch the country's latest action in the Middle East.

Britain is already engaged in airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq, but many members of parliament and much of the public have been wary of entering into another costly military operation in Syria.
