PM David Cameron said he wants Britain to play a greater role in destroying the self-proclaimed Islamic State in Syria, vowing to press the parliament for the case.

Speaking to US TV network NBC on Sunday, Cameron told NBC’s Meet The Press “We have to destroy this caliphate, whether it is in Iraq or in Syria.
That is a key part of defeating this terrorist scourge that we face”.

“I want Britain to do more. Be in no doubt, we’re committed to working with you to destroy the caliphate in both countries”, he added.

In 2013, the UK parliament voted against a proposed military action against Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. However, Cameron has asked lawmakers to consider a potential participation alongside the US-led coalition to destroy the Islamic State in Syria, since UK fighter jets already conduct anti-ISIS airstrikes in neighboring Iraq.

Cameron is expected to address young Britons vulnerable to ISIS temptation who will end up nothing but “cannon fodder’. “If you are a boy, they will brainwash you, strap bombs to your body and blow you up. If you are a girl, they will enslave and abuse you,” he will say.

Experts say Cameron’s fresh push to expand military action against ISIS is much fuelled by Tunisia’s beach massacre on late June where nearly 30 British holidaymakers have been brutally massacred by an ISIS fanatic at the tourist resort at Port El Kantaoui, about 10 kilometers north of the city of Sousse.
