The campaign against ISIS got a boost today – when British lawmakers voted in favour of airstrikes against the terrorist group’s strongholds in Syria.

After lengthy debate that continued for more than 10 hours – the vote was 397 in favour – and 223 against.

Following the November 13th terror attacks in Paris, France asked the U.S. led coalition to beef up the military offensive against ISIS.

Now that Britain has decided to expand airstrikes – previously conducted only in Iraq – the spotlight shifts to the German parliament – which also is expected to approve greater military commitment against the terror group.

Germany’s plan would call for 1200 troops in a support role – not engaging in direct combat with ISIS.
