Mr Cameron, who is in New York for the UN general assembly, is expected to use a speech today to set out further details of Britain’s involvement, with speculation growing that he will announce that Britain will join the bombing.
The PM has indicated that he wants to consult the House of Commons, raising the prospect of a Parliament recall on Friday.
Mr Cameron will be anxious to avoid a repeat of last year’s humiliating Commons defeat over airstrikes against Bashar al-Assad’s forces in Syria.
Labour joined rebel Tories and Lib Dems to vote down that act of imperialist aggression, but senior party figures, including leader Ed Miliband, have backed US-led military action against militants, arguing however that Britain shouldn’t commit forces unless the mission is legal, well-planned and includes a clear exit strategy.
CND general secretary Kate Hudson said: “When David Cameron beat the war drum over Syria a year ago, Ed Miliband urged caution and the Tories suffered an historic anti-war defeat in Parliament.
“He seemed to understand that a bombing campaign by the West would do little to resolve the crisis there. And he was vindicated.
“But in his speech to Labour Party conference today Ed Miliband has all but written a blank cheque to David Cameron, as President Barack Obama leads the charge with airstrikes against Isis in Syria and Iraq.”
A spokeswoman for Stop the War added: “If this vote passes British forces will be back in action in Iraq just three years after the last troops were withdrawn from the catastrophic occupation of 2003-11.”
Stop the War is calling on supporters to lobby their MPs and protest outside Downing Street from 5.30pm.
