Germany is part of coalition against ISIL

In Berlin, the Council of Ministers approved the sending of soldiers to combat the Group Islamic State (Daesh) in Syria. The Germany will join the us-led coalition, and is expected to send up to 1200 soldiers and reconnaissance planes.

The decision is still dependent on the approval of Parliament next week dominated by the coalition of Angela Merkel which has an absolute majority in the Chamber.

However, members of the left opposition and the Greens have expressed wariness about the mission on Syria, arguing that the battle will not be won by military.

"There won't be a future with Assad and there will be no cooperation with the troops under the command of Assad. He will have to answer for his attack on his people with barrel bombs and toxic gas, "said the Defense Minister, Ursula von der Leyen.

The mission, initially limited to one year in duration includes the use of an airplane-tank to provide fuel to French bombers, as well as sending a frigate to assist in the work of protecting the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.
