Tornado GR4 aircraft have completed another round of air strikes in Iraq overnight.
The Royal Air Force aircraft have flown further missions to assist the Iraqi government in its fight against ISIL.
Last night, 2 Tornado GR4s were tasked to support the Iraqi Army. Brimstone missiles and Paveway IV guided bombs were used to conduct a successful precision attack on ISIL terrorists who were firing on Iraqi troops from a stronghold near Ramadi.
Last night’s air strike was the latest in a series of strikes as part of the international coalition’s operations to support the democratic Iraqi government in the fight against ISIL.
