British RAF Tornado Fighter Jets Carry Out Airstrikes Against ISIS In Syria

London; Dec.3: Britain has carried out its first airstrikes in Syria, hours after MPs voted overwhelmingly to authorise military action.

Four RAF Tornado jets were seen taking off from the Akrotiri base in Cyprus and the Ministry of Defence later confirmed it had carried out the "first offensive operation over Syria and have conducted strikes".

The four RAF jets carry a range of munitions including Paveway IV guided bombs and precision-guided Brimstone missiles. Defence officials refused to be drawn on the targets of their mission.

A total of 66 Labour MPs rejected the advice of their leader, Jeremy Corbyn, and voted with the government, but only seven Tories ignored the party's three-line whip and voted to oppose airstrikes.
