Isil targeted by RAF Brimstone missiles through windows of building in Iraq

Telegraph wires

Footage taken from an RAF Tornado shows two Brimstone missiles striking the windows of a building which Isil were using to open fire on the Iraqi Army.

The footage has been slowed down and the missiles both circled in red to show their impact on the building.

Islamic extremists have been repeatedly targeted in the last few days by Royal Air Force aircraft providing support to Iraqi ground forces.

RAF Tornado GR4s, Typhoon FGR4s and Reapers have continued to fly daily missions over Syria and Iraq.

On Wednesday 3 February 2016 both Typhoons and Tornados provided close air support to Iraqi forces clearing Isil positions in the area around Ramadi.
