Typhoon jets bombed an Islamic State position and an artillery piece north of Raqqa, and a large weapons store in Mosul.

A Reaper hit two terrorist targets south of Mosul.

According to a press release, a Reaper supported Iraqi troops as they fought to liberate the village of Umarkan, south of Mosul. The Reaper’s crew observed a group of Islamic State fighters retreating into a building. Having checked that there were no indications of any civilians in the area, the Reaper was able to direct a successful coalition air strike onto the target. Our aircraft then used two of its own Hellfire missiles to kill a group of terrorists as they manoeuvred in the open, and to destroy a vehicle carrying a mortar.

In Mosul itself, a Typhoon flight used four Paveway IVs to destroy a weapons stockpile in a large isolated building on the western bank of the Tigris. A second pair of Typhoons meanwhile continued to support the SDF north of Raqqa.

Working closely with a coalition surveillance aircraft, the Typhoons were able to destroy a terrorist position with a Paveway IV despite the SDF being very near the target. The Typhoons then used another Paveway IV against an artillery piece concealed in trees some ten miles north of Raqqa.
