The Australian Government has committed to increasing the nation’s intake of refugees from Syria’s civil war. This is expected to be in addition to the 13,750 refugees that the Coalition has previously agreed to accept each year. The Government has indicated that persecuted religious minorities such as Christians and Yazidis will receive priority, although some politicians have argued that religion should not be a factor. Meanwhile, Australian fighter jets stationed in the Middle East will soon commence airstrikes in Syria.
