British jets deployed on 1st Iraq anti-ISIS mission

Armed British RAF jets have been deployed on their first mission in Iraq since UK lawmakers voted to authorize military strikes against so-called Islamic State (IS) targets in the country.

A Ministry of Defense Spokesman (MOD) confirmed on Saturday that “Royal Air Force Tornados continue to fly over Iraq and are now ready to be used in an attack role as and when appropriate targets are identified.”
