Denmark to Deploy Special Forces to Fight ISIS in Syria | Newsweek

Denmark has sanctioned special forces to fight the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Syria.

A NATO member, Denmark is already part of the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS in Iraq. But on Friday, following a request from the coalition, the Danish parliament extended their remit to the war-torn neighboring country, where the militant group controls the eastern city of Raqqa.

“The fight against ISIL is an important foreign and security policy priority for the government,” Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen told public broadcaster TV2, using another acronym for ISIS, according to AFP news agency.
