The Netherlands is set to join the so-called US-led coalition in Syria against the purported positions of the Daesh terror group, extending its anti-Daesh mission in neighboring Iraq.

The Dutch foreign and defense ministries said in a statement on Friday that The Hague has decided to carry out airstrikes against Daesh in eastern Syria in a bid to make the battle against the terrorists in Iraq “more efficient.”

“We are going to deploy the F-16s above Syria, in particular to stop the pipeline leading from Syria into Iraq,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said, alluding to the Daesh militants.
