Britain Takes A Drastic Step In Combating ISIL, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced Friday during a pointed press conference that U.K. authorities will soon begin revoking the passports of citizens traveling to Syria.
The move is part of a series of new security measures being taken by the country after raising the terror threat level to “severe” as Cameron admitted the fight to end Islamist extremism may take decades, or even generations.
“We are in the middle of a generational struggle against a poisonous & extremist ideology,” Cameron declared.
British authorities raised the terror threat level Friday to one below “critical,” the highest alert, because it is felt an attack is likely, according to Cameron.
“What we’re facing in Iraq and Syria now with ISIL is a deeper and greater threat to our security than we have ever known before,” Cameron said.
