Britain to support newly-formed Muslim nations’ ‘ground army’ against Isil

Britain faced the prospect of being dragged further into the war in Syria on Tuesday night, as it was poised to support a newly-formed “ground army” from Muslim nations who could attack Isil within weeks.

The coalition of 34 largely Sunni Muslim nations on Tuesday night said it was planning to send special forces into Syria to help defeat Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

British forces, alongside the United States and other Nato allies, are already bombing Isil in both Iraq and Syria, but military sources said they would have to provide command and control, intelligence and air support to troops from the new coalition.
