BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – British Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 fighter jets were captured at the United Kingdom’s Norfolk military Air Base, Friday overnight, ahead of a bombing raid on a Syrian military base in Homs.
Four British RAF Tornado jets were used in the mission to bomb Homs using Storm Shadow missiles, as the US, UK and France have launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus.
The airstrikes are a response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication.’
