The United Arab Emirates Air Force Lockheed Martin F-16E/F Desert Falcons are into their second day of renewed air strikes against the so-called Islamic State forces (ISIS / ISIL / Daech).
Through the UAE news agency WAM the UAE Armed Forces issued a brief statement on Tuesday 10 February 2015, saying that the UAEAF F-16s carried out a series of strikes on Tuesday morning from the Jordanian airbase they deployed to in the weekend. The fighters returned safely back to base after striking their targets, according to the UAE.
Experts assumed that the strikes took place in Syria, possibly around Raqqa, but this has not been confirmed independently.
