RAF Destroys More Than One IS Target Per Day In September
The MoD says the RAF had its busiest month since February.
So-called Islamic State targets in Syria were successfully hit at a rate of more than one per day in September, according to the Ministry of Defence.
The MoD said British air strikes have 'destroyed a significant number' of Daesh command posts, tunnel networks and weapon caches in what has been the UK's busiest month over Syria since February.
RAF Typhoons, Tornados and Reapers have all been used to continue the UK's support of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Iraqi Security Forces, as they attack the last remaining pockets of Daesh in both countries.
The UK has been fighting Daesh, also referred to as the so-called Islamic State (IS), for around four years as part of Operation Shader.
Since 2014, RAF aircrew based in Cyprus have been flying daily missions over Iraq and Syria as part of a coalition of nations fighting IS.
The Operation started as a humanitarian aid mission but has grown into a complex mission to try to defeat IS.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: "The fight against Daesh is by no means over and we must continue to stand up for our people and our partners, to ensure their abhorrent and poisonous ideology does not spread to our streets.
"So long as they pose a clear and immediate threat to our national and international security, we will work tirelessly to stamp them out.
"We will not ease off and allow them to reorganise, as this months’ operations show."
