British Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday lawmakers should authorize airstrikes in Syria against the Islamic State forces as the country should not subcontract its security to other countries.
The government is yet to set any timetable for vote on air strikes against the ISIS in Syria but Cameron is confident the parliament would consider the proposal over the weekend and the vote may be possible as early as next week.
Releasing a 36-page document the PM added Britain would become a target if the country fear of air strikes over Syria and threat to the country is already high.
Currently the air campaign of Britain is limited to Iraq as the idea of bombing Syria was rejected in 2013 in a parliamentary vote.
Cameron’s supporters now rationalize the rejection in 2013 was of proposal to attack the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and not the Islamic militants.
