The motion, requesting British 'military action', specifically airstrikes, exclusively against IS in Syria', was approved by 397 votes to 223.

The approval will pave the way for British warplanes to extend their bombing missions from Iraq to Syria.

British members of the Parliament (MPs) clashed bitterly in a whole day of heated debate in the House of Commons over whether to extend British airstrikes against the IS targets to Syria.

Opening the debate yesterday British Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain "should not wait any longer before reducing the treat from IS to its security."

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, opposed extending Britain bombing into Syria, warning that "the prime minister's proposal for military action simply does not stack up''.
