The battle for Mosul: RAF jets pound ISIS positions as 40,000 troops from 60 countries bid to cripple the terror group’s last major stronghold in Iraq
British warplanes have played a key role in the battle for Mosul today, with fleets of Typhoon jets targeting Islamic State positions in a bid to cripple the terror group’s last major stronghold in Iraq. RAF heroes supported the Iraqi army during the major attack which has already inflicted ‘heavy losses of life and equipment’ on ISIS southeast of the city, according to military chiefs.
More than 40,000 Iraqi and Kurd troops are leading the offensive, backed by air and ground support from a 60-nation US-led coalition, in what is expected to be a long and difficult assault. Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said with UK help, Iraqi forces ‘will prevail’ as ISIS is on the ‘back foot’.
