Norway might send troops to Syria to support anti-ISIS operation

The Norwegian government said it might send special forces soldiers to Syria, to help with counter-Islamic State (ISIS) efforts in that country, after its parliament authorized it to do so on Wednesday.

“Local forces [fighting ISIS] are making more progress than we could have expected. It is therefore more on the agenda that coalition forces should be able to train, advise and give operational support on Syrian territory in their battle against IS,” said Norway’s defense minister, Ine Eriksen Soreide, in a statement.
