British Minister of Defense Michael Fallon said today that their bombers hit ISIS oilfields in Syria again on Friday night, Reuters reports.
“Last night we saw the Typhoons in action for the first time, successfully hitting an oil field, oil well heads in eastern Syria out in the Omar field,” – Fallon told during his visit to the British airbase in Cyprus.
British Parliament approved the bombing of Islamic State targets in Syria on Thursday. Hours after that approval, British bombers struck the oilfields that allegedly are being used to fund attacks on the West.
The Typhoon fighter bombers had only arrived at Britain’s airbase in Akrotiri, Cyprus on Thursday, bolstering its strike force of Tornado warplanes.
