UK 'letting down' allies by not joining IS air strikes: defence chief

The head of Britain’s armed forces on Sunday said the country was “letting down” allies by not participating in air strikes against Islamic State group jihadists in Syria. Britain is part of a coalition hitting IS targets in Iraq, but its parliament has yet to be convinced of the need to join air strikes in neighbouring Syria and an influential committee of MPs recently advised against action. “To an extent yes, we are letting our allies down by not being a full player,” General Nicholas Houghton, the chief of the defence staff, told Sky News on Sunday.
