British forces have carried out airstrikes in support of the Iraqi battle to free Fallujah from the so-called Islamic State.
The Ministry of Defence confirmed RAF aircraft attacked terrorist positions in the militant-held city on Monday, as Iraqi special forces launched their first ground assault on the territory.
The MOD said Tornados, Typhoons and remotely controlled Reapers offered air support to Iraqi troops in the days leading up to Monday's assault.
Stockpiles of terrorist weapons had been destroyed, including a building north-west of Fallujah where a "large group of terrorists" had been reportedly preparing for a counter-attack.
Fallujah is situated 40 miles west of Baghdad and has been under IS control for more than two years.
