UK moves additional warplanes to the Middle East

The British government says it moved “several additional” fighter jets and refueling tankers to the region following Iran’s attack on Israel.

In a statement, the government said the air assets will bolster the UK’s existing operation against the armed group ISIL (ISIS) in Syria and Iraq, as well as intercepting “any airborne attacks within the range of our existing missions as required”.

A spokesperson said a “number of aircraft” have been “temporarily moved” from Romania to boost “our existing footprint in the region”.
