    British Jets Bomb Saddam Palace Used By ISIS In Iraq

    British fighter jets have bombed a former palace of Saddam Hussein being used as a training centre for Isis recruits in Iraq, according to the UK Ministry of Defence.

    A pair of RAF Tornados took part as a multinational squadron attacked the headquarters and training centre for foreign terrorist recruits, located close to the Tigris in Mosul.

    The strike was part of a co-ordinated coalition attack on the compound, which housed and trained recruits and contained outbuildings for internal security and repression, the MoD said. Extensive surveillance had shown Islamic State was using the palace, built by Iraq’s former dictator as a major headquarters and training centre.

    The secure compound next to the Tigris river included the main palace used for accommodation and meetings, and outbuildings used for command and control, training, internal security and repression, the MoD said.

    The UK defence secretary, Michael Fallon, said: “Daesh [Isis] has been losing followers and territory for months, and emphatic strikes like this show that we and the coalition will not waver.”
