Denmark at war with IS in Syria

Denmark will contribute F16 fighter jets and 400 ground troops – including special forces – after a parliamentary majority voted in favour of sending both ground and air forces to fight Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. The decision was the outcome after after a five-hour long session in Folketinget, the Danish parliament.

Denmark’s defence minister, Peter Christensen says, to Copenhagen Post that the coalition aims to fight on the side of “various armed Syrian groups” collectively known as the Syrian Democratic Forces. He declined to provide more details about the groups, citing security concerns.
