Britain’s Parliament on Friday voted to approve air strikes against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants by 524 votes to 43, paving the way for the Royal Air Force to join U.S.-led military action with immediate effect.
Six Cyprus-based Tornado GR4 fighter-bombers are on standby to take part in initial strikes in Iraq after Prime Minister David Cameron recalled parliament from recess to back military action following an official request from the Iraqi government.
The Belgian and Danish governments on Friday also announced they are joining the coalition to strike at ISIS, sending seven F-16 fighter jets to take part in airstrikes against the group in Iraq.
