‘ISIS is waging war on the West and we will oppose it with every breath in our body’: Foreign Secretary says British troops could be sent to Baghdad
‘The Prime Minister will hold meetings today over the ‘shocking and depraved’ execution of photographer James Foley.
The dramatic development came after the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the Islamic State was waging war on Britain and the West and the organisation had to be dealt with ‘on that basis’.
He also said the jihadist filmed executing Mr Foley ‘appears to be British’ and revealed the Government believed the video was ‘genuine’.
Mr Hammond said the UK would oppose the Islamic State ‘with every breath in our body’ and could send British troops to Baghdad to train Iraqi forces to fight the ‘evil organisation’.’
