(Worthy News) - Lawmakers on Friday approved plans for Germany to take on a direct role in the battle against the Islamic State group in Syria, answering France’s appeal for help.

Parliament voted for the mandate for the deployment of Tornado reconnaissance jets, a frigate and up to 1,200 troops by an overwhelming majority of 445 votes in favor and 146 against. Seven lawmakers abstained.

Earlier this week, the German chief of staff said Berlin had plans to deploy 1,200 soldiers to help in the fight against the Islamic State. [ Source ]
