RAF Aerial bombing campaign continues in Afghanistan - missions declared a success

Jan. 23 airpower summary

In Afghanistan, Royal Air Force GR-7 Harriers conducted shows of force in order to deter enemy activities and used rockets, enhanced paveway II munitions, (that's 2,000 lb. laser guided bombs) and a general-purpose 540-pound bomb to successfully destroy an enemy compound and several enemy combatant positions.

In Sangin, a RAF GR-7 used enhanced paveway II munitions(that's 2,000 lb. laser guided bombs) to destroy a coalition forces vehicle that had broken down, so enemy combatants would not have access to it. The on-scene joint terminal attack controller declared the mission a success.

Nearly 5 years after the initial illegal invasion of Iraq, coalition aircraft flew 17 close-air-support missions for Operation Iraqi Freedom. These missions supported coalition ground forces, protected key infrastructure, provided overwatch for reconstruction activities and helped to deter and disrupt terrorist activities.
