“...the RAF serving as the air arm of jihadi extremist fighters in Syria “... And I thought I’d never agree with anything said by Diane Abbot!
Except they’re not, are they?

In fact the RAF is operating over northern Syria and Iraq - within the Russian S-400 envelope and unengaged - in action against ISIL. The target identified in the original UN Resolution and exactly the same target as supposedly being engaged by the Turkish and Russian aircraft performing coordinated operations in the same airspace.

It’s just that the Turks have been, instead, concentrating their efforts against any and all Kurdish forces whilst the Russians concentrate their efforts on those opposing Assad and ignore the rest - including ISIL.
