PM makes case for RAF air strikes on Syria after Paris terror attacks

David Cameron Makes Case for Strikes Against IS in Syria

David Cameron is to set out a "comprehensive strategy" for dealing with Islamic State - including extending RAF air strikes into Syria.

The Prime Minister told the Commons that the terror attacks in Paris had strengthened the case for tackling IS - also referred to as Isil, Isis or Daesh - on its home ground.

He said that as an "important first step" he would be setting out the case for doing so in a personal response to the recent report by the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee.

"My firm conviction is that we need to act against Isil in Syria. There is a compelling case for doing so," he said.
