After the November 13 terror attacks in Paris, France asked its allies to bump up their military offensive against ISIS. Now Britain and Germany will decide whether they will.
The parliaments of both countries will vote on their leaders’ requests for greater military commitment against the terror group. And the measures are expected to be approved.
British MPs began debating late Wednesday morning on whether to expand UK airstrikes to include ISIS strongholds in Syria. The discussion is expected to last some 10½ hours.
Prime Minister David Cameron kicked off debate by saying that ISIS is a threat to the British people, proved in part through beheading of UK hostages in the Middle East and other atrocities.
