Canada to launch airstrikes against ISIS in Syria ‘within days’

Canada will begin launching airstrikes against ISIS in Syria “within days,” the commander of Joint Task Force Iraq says.

Brig.-Gen. Daniel Constable declined to give a specific date, but said the final details are being put into place before the Canadian military begins expanding its operation from Iraq into Syria.

“I think we’re going to be good to go in reasonable short order,” Constable told a media briefing Thursday morning.

“The allies are excited about us getting into Syria as well because of our capabilities.”
