According to British military chiefs, two RAF Typhoon have successfully bombed a group of Islamic State jihadists in Iraq. The Ministry of Defense (MoD) reported that the fighters used precision guided bombs to take out heavily armed IS militants, who were hiding at a site near the city of Mosul.
On 11 May, the typhoon was called to support the Iraqi security force after heavy shelling of small arms from the militants. The jihadist groups were strong and safely hidden about 25 miles southwest of the city of Mosul. Unable to pull out the group, Iraqi troops demanded air support from the global coalition.
Work done with two bombs
A pair of RAF Typhoon FGR4s participated in the operation and attacked the terrorists with two Paveway IV Precision Guided Bombs. The bomb managed to hit its target and in this action many IS fighters were killed. After this airstrike, the Iraqi army was successful in executing another attack and killing some of the remaining terrorists.
Earlier in March, a 10-day operation was carried out in which missiles and bombs helped clear the IS stronghold in the Makhmoor mountain region southwest of Erbil in northern Iraq. A MoD spokesman said that on Tuesday 11 May, Iraqi security forces encountered a group of militants about twenty-five miles southwest of Mosul.
Iraqi army killed the remaining terrorists
The spokesman said that due to heavy shelling of small arms from the militants, Iraqi troops demanded air support from the Global Alliance and two Royal Air Force Typhoon FGR4s responded immediately. He said that while in contact with the Iraqis, our aircraft attacked Daesh terrorists with two Paveway IV Precision Guided Bombs. The bombs targeted their targets and wiped out many Daesh extremists, and then the Iraqi army launched a successful attack and killed the remaining terrorists.
