“Strong rallying call” issued against ISIL terrorists

24 November 2015

A resolution adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council provides a “strong rallying call” against terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria; that’s according to the President of the Council and British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft.

The 15-member body called on the international community to take the war on terrorism to territory controlled by the ISIL group, also known as Daesh.

The terrorist group controls large areas of Iraq and Syria and has started mounting attacks further afield, most notably in Paris where 129 people died in a series of assaults.

Daniel Dickinson asked Ambassador Rycroft how important the resolution is.
