Tornado jets, working with a Reaper unmanned aircraft, destroyed a mortar position in eastern Syria.
The next day, say the MoD, Tornado jets then supported a Syrian Democratic Forces attack on an Islamic State position, destroying a truck-bomb, a strong-point and an improvised explosive device facility.
With the Syrian Democratic Forces continuing their offensive against the last major pocket of Islamic State-held territory in eastern Syria, centred on Hajin, Royal Air Force aircraft have provided further intensive support say the MoD in a release.
“As in the previous month, a particular focus has been on terrorist positions north-east of Abu Kamal.
On Wednesday 3 October, an RAF Reaper detected a Daesh mortar which was firing on SDF forces a short distance away. Two RAF Tornado GR4s were also on task in the area, and they struck the mortar position with a single Paveway IV guided bomb.
The following day, an SDF attack on a Daesh position encountered a truck-bomb which was blocking their advance towards a terrorist strong-point in a nearby building. Tornados destroyed the truck-bomb using a Brimstone missile, then demolished the strong-point with a Paveway IV.”
Another building in the area was then identified as not only Islamic State-held, but a probable facility for further improvised truck-bombs. This target was also destroyed with a Paveway IV.
