RAF IN ISIS BLITZ – 30 Targets hit in less than 2 weeks

ROYAL Air Force raids have smashed 30 ‘ISIS’ targets in a fortnight as the international coalition forces the terrorists to retreat.

An intense wave of attacks between August 9 and August 21 have seen RAF aircrew destroy targets including a terrorist headquarters in Raqqa, machine gun teams and roving trucks.

So called ‘ISIS’ has lost more than 70 per cent of the territory it once held in Northern Iraq and Syria. The terror group surged into Iraq in the June 2014.

The terror group is in retreat to its heartland in and around the Syrian city of Raqqa.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said recent terror attacks in Europe served as a ‘grim reminder’ of the importance of the UK mission.

Sir Michael said: ‘As Iraqi Security Forces advance on Tal Afar and Syrian Democratic Forces continue with the liberation of Raqqa, the RAF is providing continuous air support in the fight to end Daesh’s barbarous presence in its strongholds.

‘Daesh has now lost over 70 per cent of territory it once occupied in Iraq and is in retreat in Syria.

‘This has only been possible because the UK, as a leading member in the Global Coalition, has hit the terrorists hard where they plan their campaigns of violence, depravity and hate.

‘The recent terrorist attacks serve as grim reminders of the need to defeat Daesh and its twisted ideology across all theatres.’

British aircrews and drones have been launching attacks on ISIS in Iraq and Syria for more than two years.
