Britain's mission in Iraq has changed from one purely focused on humanitarian relief to more of a military mission, the Defence Secretary has said.
Speaking during a visit to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus at the weekend, Michael Fallon said British warplanes were flying deeper into Iraq to help Iraqi troops fight jihadists.
"This is not simply a humanitarian mission. We and other countries in Europe are determined to do what we can to help the government of Iraq combat this new and very extreme form of terrorism that by IS is promoting.
He added that there was a possibility the mission could last for months and that it was "not over".
