Australia Urges More European Nations Join IS Air Strikes

Australia is urging more European countries to take part in air strikes against the Islamic State (IS) group in Syria and Iraq in an effort to help end the refugee crisis in Europe.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said IS militants are mainly responsible for driving millions of people from their homes in Iraq and Syria and hundreds of thousands of people to seek refuge in Europe.

She said in Sydney on August 31 that more than “40 percent of the people currently seeking asylum in Europe are from Syria, and we need a united front to defeat the terrorist organizations that are driving the displacement of so many people.”
