RAF aircraft have continued their campaign against ISIS/Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
Tornado GR4s tracked and destroyed a lorry carrying a car bomb west of Mosul on Wednesday, April 13, before destroying two clusters of barges being used by terrorists to transport troops and supplies across the Tigris.
The next day a Tornado team supported Kurdish forces in the south of Iraq by destroying a mortar position and the entrance to a cave system using Paveway IV bombs.
In western Iraq, as the last ISIS/Daesh fighters pulled out of Hit, a Tornado flight used two Brimstone missiles to sink boats used by them to cross the Euphrates.
The Tornado force is based at RAF Marham but is flying out of RAF Akrotiri, in Cyprus, for the current campaign.
