Picture date: Thursday December 3, 2015. The air strikes were carried out within hours of a vote by MPs in the Commons to back extending operations against Islamic State (IS) from neighbouring Iraq. Four RAF Tornado jets, which carry a range of munitions including Paveway IV guided bombs and precision-guided Brimstone missiles, took off from the Akrotiri base in Cyprus but defence officials refused to be drawn on the targets of their mission.

On Sunday the jets used Brimstone missiles to take out the cranes and a further two cranes were bombed on Monday.

Tornados have also been deployed in Iraq where they destroyed a sniper team and mortar position which had opened fire on Kurdish forces.
