THE UK PARLIAMENT is today expected to approve airstrikes on Islamic State (Isis) targets in Syria.

The British government has argued that military action would help put Isis militants on the defensive and suppress their ability to carry out attacks in Europe.

The proposal, if approved, would see the UK joining the US-led coalition that has been bombing Syria since September 2014.

But anti-war campaigners say the move would only worsen the conflict, a message recently echoed by Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, who claims airstrikes help Isis recruit more fighters.
