The RAF is continuing to take the fight to Daesh

RAF Reapers kept up the fight against Daesh last week striking armed trucks and command posts across eastern Syria and, for the first time, terrorist drone operators.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:

“As the threats, we face rapidly evolve and intensify, the work our brave Armed Forces do is paramount to our security at home and abroad. We have been clear that Daesh terrorists have nowhere to hide and we will continue to fight until their poisonous global network is totally destroyed.”

UK Reapers, Typhoons and Tornados struck every day last week providing close air support to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) clearing Daesh from the Euphrates valley. The coalition air campaign continues to degrade the terrorist group which has lost more than 90% of the territory they previously controlled in Iraq and Syria.
