    [size=52]An account of British Air Force missions in Iraq and Syria[/size]

    [size=45]On Wednesday, the British website “Forsysnet”, which specializes in military news, presented an outcome of the missions of the British Royal Air Force from its military base in Cyprus, in the war on terrorism in Iraq and Syria, indicating that this mission will continue.[/size]
    [size=45]Nine years after the launch of Operation Shader, carried out by the British Royal Air Force in Iraq and Syria, the report said, “The air missions began from the Akrotiri Base in Cyprus in September 2014, which represents Britain’s contribution to Operation The solid resolve “led by the United States to fight ISIS.”[/size]
    [size=45]"Since 2014, the British Royal Air Force has flown more than 8,000 sorties, carrying out operations including air strikes, surveillance, transport and aerial refueling," the British report stated.[/size]
    [size=45]The report indicated that "Britain, nine years after the launch of the operation, is still the second largest contributor to the international mission, after the United States."[/size]
    [size=45]The report quoted a military pilot flying a Typhoon as part of Operation Shader, as saying that his first mission in 2014 was “totally different” than it is now.[/size]
    [size=45]The report indicated that the pilot participated at the time in an initial humanitarian mission to deliver food and aid when millions of people fled from Mosul to Sinjar to try to escape from ISIS.[/size]
    [size=45]The report quoted the British pilot as saying that "it was devastating" to see what was happening on the ground from the air, adding that "the picture on the ground was almost chaotic, throughout the area of ​​operations."[/size]
    [size=45]And the pilot continued, saying, "The situation has now become calm, day and night...as there are no explosions of bombs or shootings...all of that is good, isn't it?"[/size]
    [size=45]He explained, “We are now here, and we have not returned to any level close to the levels we were at nine years ago, and there are no more bombs falling from planes. In the end, this is a good job well done.” He added, "Air combat is not always related to making an impact, but rather to being present if necessary."[/size]
    [size=45]The report said that with the eyes of the world focused on Ukraine, some might question the necessity of Operation Shader.[/size]
    [size=45]But the report quoted the commander of the 903rd Air Expeditionary Force, Richard Fox, as saying, "The fact that we were able to suppress ISIS may be because of what we did here (at Akrotiri Air Base)."[/size]
    [size=45]"This is the usual deterrence, and retaining this capability that we have here in Cyprus, will probably continue to suppress ISIS," Fox said.[/size]
