U.K. Launches ISIS Airstrikes In Syria After Vote [VIDEO]

British fighter jets took off from an RAF airbase in Cyprus and carried out airstrikes in Syria, just hours after lawmaker voted in favor of launching airstrikes against ISIS targets in the war-torn country, the Ministry of Defense confirmed early Thursday. Four Royal Air Force Tornados left the Akrotiri base shortly after the vote and conducted “successful” airstrikes on the Omar oil fields in eastern Syria, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said. Typhoon jet fighters left RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland, to join the airstrikes. The AP first reported the airstrikes late Wednesday night.
