UK pilots embedded with coalition allies' forces have been conducting air strikes over Syria against the Islamic State group, it has emerged.
This is despite UK MPs voting in 2013 against military action in Syria.
The MoD said personnel embedded with the US, French and Canadian armed forces had been "authorised to deploy with their units to participate in coalition operations" against IS.
"UK embeds operate as if they were the host nation's personnel, under that nation's chain of command," it said.
Further proof the UK military is completely undeserving of any respect whatsoever.
