David Cameron says launching UK air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria will “make us safer”.
The prime minister denied claims it would make the UK a bigger target for terror attacks, as he made the case for military action, in the Commons.
He told MPs the UK was already a target for IS – and the only way to deal with that was to “take action” now.
The UK could not “outsource our security to allies” and it had to stand by France, he added.
David Cameron says he will hold a Commons vote on Syria air strikes if he thinks he will win it.
