The RAF conducted 10 successful airstrikes in 19 days over the Christmas period on Daesh targets in the east of Syria, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced.
The airstrikes took place between 19 December and 6 January, with targets being hit on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
A combination of RAF Typhoon and Tornado jets, as well as Reaper drones, have been supporting Syrian Democratic Forces on the ground as Daesh's grip on the country weakens.
Britain has been fighting Daesh, also known as the so-called Islamic State (IS), since 2014 as part of Operation Shader, with RAF jets flying daily missions over Iraq and Syria from their base in Cyprus.
