Its chief has said that in the wake of the terrorist group’s rocket attacks, the RAF is ready to hit ISIS targets in Afghanistan.
Sir Mike Wigton was speaking after Dominic Raab said Britain would use “all necessary means” to deal with the threat posed by jihadists.
A branch of a terrorist group based in Afghanistan, known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing at Kabul airport that killed 170 Afghan and 13 American soldiers.
But even The United States finally returned after 20 years.The focus has already shifted to dealing with a terrorist group that fears it could use Taliban-controlled Afghanistan to plot attacks on Britain.
“Ultimately, the reason is that we have to be able to play a global role in the global coalition to defeat ISIS,” Air Chief Marshal Wigton told the Telegraph.
ISIS is an insulting term for ISIS in Arabic and is often used by opponents when referring to it.
He added that it could be “a strike or a large-scale and rapid movement of troops or equipment to a particular country.”
“If we have the opportunity to partner, I have no doubt we will be ready,” he said.
“It will happen wherever extremism arises and it is a direct or indirect threat to Britain and our allies.
“Afghanistan is probably one of the most accessible parts of the world, and we are able to work there.”
Government officials have understood that logistics are being looked into for any possible strikes, including where RAF aircraft will be stationed.
Mr Raab signed a joint statement issued by the US-led coalition, which had previously targeted ISIS in Syria and Iraq in a bid to crush terrorists.
“The United Kingdom stands with our Allies in mourning those who have died. ISIL’s horrific attack on Kabul airport. And in our unwavering collective commitment to counter ISIS networks in every way possible, wherever they operate.
US forces have reportedly eliminated several terrorist threats in the days following the attack.
As they prepared to withdraw six rockets fired at Kabul airport, they were stopped by the US anti-missile system.
