First airstrike by Britain kills two ISIS fighters in Syria

London, Sept. 8 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that the first airstrike conducted by the country in August in Syria killed two Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters who had been plotting attacks on British soil.

According to the Guardian, Cameron told British politicians that Reyaad Khan had been targeted and killed in a precision drone strike in the country.
