Belgium joined the international coalition against ISIS
Belgium may soon join the international coalition against ISIS, which already includes a number of NATO countries. This was stated by Interior Minister Yang Yambon. Also, Russia may soon join the international coalition led by the US.
The decision to join the war was dictated by the fact that the country has recently become subject to the terrorist threat. After the terrible terrorist attacks in Paris, part of the terrorists managed to take refuge in Belgium. Law enforcers have introduced a state of emergency and verifies the migrants and other suspicious individuals.
The participation of the armed forces in the Syrian operation in Belgium is not yet confirmed but it is expected a decision that can be taken against the backdrop of the UN Secretary General’s call to unite efforts against terrorism and its manifestations.
Russia has joined the conflict when in late September sent a group of aviation bombers and attack aircraft to the Syrian Latakia airport. Participation of military space forces of Russia in the fight against terrorists of ISIS happened at the request of the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.
