On Monday, the U.K.’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, revealed that U.S. and British drones have killed three ISIS terrorists in Syria who plotted to kill Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and hundreds of other citizens.
It’s said that the terrorists were planning on detonating a bomb during the Victory in Japan Day celebrations last month. Yikes!
The P.M. went onto relay that the extremists were British jihadists who had moved to Syria to plan the terrifying attack.
“There was a terrorist directing murder on our streets and no other means to stop them.”
Whoa, Cameron is not playing around.
The deceased have been identified as Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin who passed away in Raqqa during last month’s military action. The third British national’s been listed as Junaid Hussain who was killed in an air strike by U.S. forces.
This is some seriously intense stuff. In fact, this is the first time the British government has taken action in the Syrian Civil War AND the first U.K. drone attack on a British citizen. Man, oh man.
“My first duty as prime minister is to keep the British people safe. This government does not for one moment take these decisions lightly. But I am not prepared to stand here in the aftermath of a terrorist attack on our streets and have to explain to the House why I did not take the chance to prevent it when I could have done.”
Well said! We can’t imagine what it took to make such a lethal decision.
