RAF Tornados have left RAF Marham this afternoon bound for Cyprus from where they will conduct surveillance missions over Northern Iraq.
Meanwhile, the RAF has dropped a second batch of aid to thousands of people trapped on a mountain as they flee advancing Islamic State militants.
The MOD are now also considering the use of RAF Chinooks for humanitarian work in the area.
The batch included more than fifteen thousand litres of clean water as well as solar lamps.
The nerve centre for the operation is at the former RAF Airfield at Kemble in Gloucestershire from where Tim Cooper reports.
