Denmark is set to deliver mobile radar to support the international coalition fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq and Syria.
Commenting on the latest decision, Denmark Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen said that the country has to be actively present in the fight against IS, The Associated Press reported.
According to Jensen, the radars will help to create aerial images in a large part of the area of operations in both the countries.
The parliamentary foreign affairs committee of Denmark approved the government’s proposal to provide the radar for the mission, the news agency reported.
Last month, Denmark announced its plan to temporarily withdraw its Kuwait-based F-16 fighter jets supporting international coalition airstrikes against ISIL in northern Iraq.
Jensen earlier said that the decision to withdraw its fighter jets will allow the aircraft to undergo repairs and the air force personnel to recover.
The country’s decision to call back the aircraft came after the plane mechanics stationed in Iraq argued to give the aircraft and crew a break in a bid to carry out repairs on the jets and allow the crew to be free from stress.
Denmark started bombing IS targets in northern Iraq in October last year with four F-16s, while three other jets are in a reserve capacity.
Recently, the Government of Australia and France announced their plans to extend the air strikes against ISIL into Syria.
