Prime Minister David Cameron will hold a Commons debate on Wednesday about whether to bomb Islamic State targets in Syria.
Mr Cameron said he believed air strikes were “in the public interest” and was keen to “answer the call from our allies and work with them, because Isil is a threat to our country and this is the right thing to do”.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – who is opposed to military intervention in Syria – said he would give his MPs a free vote on the matter.
Britain is already conducting daily air strikes against Islamic targets in Iraq. Wednesday’s debate will decide whether to extend those strikes to targets in Syria.
What do you think? Should Britain extend its bombing campaign in Iraq to Syria?
