British air force admits involvement in airstrikes which hit Syrian troops killing 62
A Statement released by the Ministry of Defence today has admitted British Involvement in the airstrikes which killed 62 Syrian soldiers and has created a huge question mark over the Russian/US ceasefire in Syrian airspace.
British attack drones were deployed during the strikes which now leave Russia and The United states Of America’s military leaders on the verge of war.
British RAF involvement in the fatal strikes will not be good news for the general public of Britain who learned of the attacks via the Ministry of Defence’s official Twitter account earlier today.

Russia has called the 62 deaths and 100+ injuries to Syrian army members on duty an act of war, so where does this leave Britain?
A similar story broke on the day of the Paris attacks in November 2015 with David Cameron announcing British drone strikes & intel helped to kill the former ISIL executioner Jihadi John.
An MoD spokesman said: “We can confirm that the UK participated in the recent coalition air strike in Syria, south of Dayr az Zawr on Saturday, and we are fully cooperating with the coalition investigation. “The UK would not intentionally target Syrian military units. It would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.”
