Government responded:

Following a lengthy debate, MPs voted for the UK to conduct airstrikes against Daesh in Syria. Military action is only one element of the UK’s comprehensive strategy for defeating Daesh.

One week after the tragic attacks in Paris, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2249; a clear call for action against Daesh, using all necessary measures.

The UK has always been committed to defeating Daesh. Parliament’s approval of airstrikes in Syria on 2 December has allowed the UK to join our allies in the Global Coalition in striking Daesh in Syria as well as in Iraq, where we have been active since the start of the Coalition’s campaign.

The UK Government supported extending British airstrikes against Daesh into Syria as an integral part of a much broader strategy to degrade Daesh and reduce the threat it poses to us.

Our comprehensive overall strategy to tackle Daesh globally includes political, diplomatic and humanitarian action, as well as military. The UK is a leading part of a Global Coalition of 65 countries and international organisations, including many in the region, united to defeat Daesh on all fronts. We are attacking Daesh militarily, but we are also squeezing its finances, disrupting the flow of fighters, challenging its poisonous ideology and working to stabilise areas liberated from Daesh. We must pursue all these tracks in parallel.

The Prime Minister has been clear that tackling Daesh financing is a key element of our comprehensive strategy. Daesh gains most of its funding from the territory it controls – by selling oil, by taxing and exhorting local populations, and by seizing and selling prized antiquities. The UK has led UN efforts on sanctions, making it illegal to sell oil and oil products to Daesh. We are also expanding existing work with regional partners to stop Daesh’s ability to trade outside formal financial system, by cutting access to black market and international money flows and to stop smuggling. However, the military campaign is also crucial; through targeted military actions, the Global Coalition has already damaged or destroyed 260 oil infrastructure targets.

We must tackle Daesh in Syria, as we are doing with some success in Iraq, in order to deal with the threat that Daesh poses to the region and to our security in the UK. As the threat from Daesh grows, we must take action - recognising that no course of action is without risk, but that inaction – not dealing with Daesh at source – also carries grave risk.

The Prime Minister has also been clear that the UK will continue to support the diplomatic and political process. The UK’s priority in Syria has always been to achieve a political settlement which is the only way to stop this terrible war and give Syrians hope for the future.

As members of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) we are working with a host of countries including Russia, the US, France, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UN, towards negotiations between the Syrian parties on a transitional government, a new constitution and free and fair elections. All those countries have accepted the principles set out in the Geneva Communiqué – the need for Syrian-led and Syrian owned political transition. The composition of the transitional government will be negotiated by Syrians through the peace process, with the support of the UN and the ISSG. We welcome the adoption of UN Security Council resolution 2254 on 18 December requesting UN-convened peace negotiations and formally endorsing the ISSG Vienna process. As the Foreign Secretary said at the UN on 18 December “This has given new international momentum towards the resumption of Syrian-led talks”.

We remain committed to supporting international efforts to alleviate the terrible humanitarian suffering. The UK is playing its part. We have pledged over £1.1 billion, our largest ever response to a single humanitarian crisis. But more is needed. The Supporting Syria and the Region London 2016 Conference in February will aim to raise significant new funding from a wider range of partners to meet the needs of all those affected by the crisis within Syria and to support neighbouring countries.

While military operations are inherently risky, we take the protection of civilians very seriously. We employ rigorous targeting protocols. In more than a year of strikes against Daesh targets in Iraq, there have been no reports of civilian casualties resulting from UK air operations. The UK has the most advanced forms of targeting and precision weaponry, possessed by only a small number of countries, which enables us to strike accurately, with minimal collateral damage. These same high standards are being applied in Syria.

Thousands attend protests against UK airstrikes on Syria

He said: “I came down today to voice my disagreement with the proposed war on Syria. Dropping bombs didn’t work in Iraq, it didn’t work in Afghanistan, and it’s not worked in Libya. We’ve stoked up more extremism, more anger and more discontent among the populations of these countries.”

Beall said he was “very pessimistic” about preventing the military action. “Sadly I think there will be strikes, I think David Cameron is determined to go in one way or another.”

Addressing the crowd, Brian Eno said bombing Syria would “make Isil’s dreams come true”. Mark Rylance chanted: “Don’t bomb Syria, don’t attack Syria, not in my name!”

The actor said: “I’m tired with being associated with terrorism. I’m tired of my tax money going towards violent solutions to problems of injustice.”




The story of Manuel Colaço Dias, sole victim of the Stade de France blasts

Manuel Colaço Dias was not meant to be working on the night he was killed. The Portuguese chauffeur had worked for a shuttlebus company for about 10 years until retiring three years ago, but still took the odd fare when passengers specifically requested him, as happened two Fridays ago.

“He did not want to work that night, but nonetheless agreed to the job,” said his son, Michael Dias. It was to be the 63-year-old’s last journey.

Moments after Dias dropped off his passengers, a suicide bomber blew himself up in the first of three explosions so powerful they shook the foundations of France’s national stadium.

Dias was killed on the spot, the sole victim of the Stade de France blasts. He was the first of 130 fatalities during more than three hours of terror across the French capital.

Michael said he did not want to think of his father’s death as pure bad luck, choosing instead to believe that “his time had come, that it was his destiny and that it was inevitable”.

He said he was concerned, like many Parisians, about life in the city following the attacks. “It is more the sense of insecurity that worries me. The fear of being in Paris, to go out and eat out. All Parisians are currently feeling and experiencing this,” he said.
