According to news outlets that saw the text, it calls for “member states that have the capacity to do so to take all necessary measures—in compliance with international law, on the territory under the control of [ISIS]—to redouble and coordinate their efforts to prevent and suppress terrorist acts.”

It also calls for member states to “intensify their efforts to stem the flow of foreign terrorist fighters to Iraq and Syria and to prevent and suppress the financing of terrorism.”

“Resolutions like this can be dangerous,” Phyllis Bennis, senior fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, told Common Dreams. “It is important that it is not taken under the terms of chapter seven, but it is implying support for all countries to use military force in ISIS territory, which is heavily populated.” 

The proposal comes as the U.S.-led military coalition carries out bombings across Iraq and Syria and France and Russia coordinate air strikes across Syria. The U.S. coalition, France, and Russia this week bombed the Syrian city of Raqqa, home to hundreds of thousands of people.

Residents in the city reported earlier this week that bombs struck a soccer stadium, hospital, museum, and government building. The group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silenty, winner of the 2014 International Press Freedom Award, on Friday quoted Raqqa resident Abo Alaa, who said: “the Russian aviation, carried out jointly with the French aviation recently, fierce attack, targeted sites and neighborhoods within the city, contains some of them civilians.”

Bennis emphasized that any military force in a crowded city like Raqqa will almost certainly have civilian casualties. “We have been using military force against terrorism for the past 15 years, and it has failed,” said Bennis. “That’s because terrorism survives wars, but people don’t.”
