UK MoD for September 2, 2019 – September 2, 2019
Monday 2 September – Typhoons destroyed a Daesh training camp in northern Iraq…A further strike in support of the Iraqi security forces was conducted by RAF aircraft on 2 September. Daesh had established a training camp in northern Iraq at a cluster of buildings in the desert, some 25 miles south-west of Ash Sharqat. Six specific targets amongst the buildings were identified, and two Typhoon FGR4s, armed with Paveway IV guided bombs, were duly dispatched from RAF Akrotiri. A coalition surveillance aircraft had kept a close watch on the site and confirmed that there was no sign of any civilians being present, whereupon all six targets were struck by the Typhoons.
