BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Royal Air Force of the United Kingdom stated on Thursday that their military would continue their airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in eastern Syria.

The UK Ministry of Defense said that their air force will not halt their bombing campaign in east Syria, despite the U.S. military’s recent withdrawal announcement.

“The Royal Air Force has continued its bombardment of key Daesh (IS) targets in Syria, helping Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and coalition allies advance through Hajin, the terrorist group’s last significant territory,” the British MoD statement said.

“Typhoon and Tornado jets struck buildings, individuals and vehicles on a daily basis throughout the start of December, supporting the SDF efforts on the ground to recapture Hajin,” they continued.

The UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson would add that the Syrian Democratic Forces’ victory against the Islamic State in Hajin was a major milestone in the battle against terrorism.

“The advance through Hajin is a huge milestone and shows that Daesh are being pushed further back into the shadows. Make no mistake though, although this is another significant battle won, much hard work still lies ahead to ensure we win the war,” he added.
