Decision to intervene in Syria's volte-face on Hollande's policy

Thirteen countries, including France, will take part in the attacks, as part of a coalition between Arab countries and the Western world. In all, about 20 countries. The France participates, but exclusively on Iraq.

This alongside the United States, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Jordan, the Netherlands and United Kingdom. The France is not part of the countries which attack positions in Syria.

Last year, there were more than 6500 bombings, the vast majority in Iraq. Just under 2500 in Syria.

The day may 16, the jihadists have taken the city of Ramadi, in Iraq. Soon after, on May 25, was the ancient city of Palmyra, which houses priceless architectural works, fall into the hands of the radicals.

Since the civil war started, France has always refused to intervene in Syria because he believed these attacks would only strengthen the position of President Bashar el-Assad: "Bachar al-Assad has to leave. Must be made up of a transitional Government in the interest of all. To all those who say that the Assad regime helps to avoid the chaos, I mean that with Assad have the most obnoxious Government possible. And chaos, "said Hollande in June 2012.

Precognitive words: France also has reasons to want to step up the fight against the Islamic State. 2015 began with the attacks against Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish grocery store in Paris.

This was followed by other attacks, including the assassination attempt failed on a train which connected Paris to Amsterdam, avoided by four passengers that Hollande awarded a few days ago, with the Legion of honor.
