Canada's prime minister will announce a one-year extension of its military mission against ISIS and expand it to include airstrikes on targets in Syria, a senior government official said Monday.Canada has 69 special forces soldiers training Kurdish peshmerga fighters in northern Iraq. They were sent last September on a mission that was billed as noncombat with the troops supposed to be working far behind the front lines. But the Canadian soldiers have been helping the Kurdish forces by directing coalition airstrikes against ISIS fighters, a role generally considered risky because it means they are close to the battle against the militants. The fact that Canadian soldiers have been working near the front lines and directing airstrikes has stirred controversy in Canada.
