British experts are leading the way in the fight against ISIS.3D cameras on aircrafts relay vital information about the enemy, which in turn allows analysts to pinpoint likely targets and their weaknesses.

The RAF is using 3D goggles to help them blitz ISIS targets in Syria, it has been reported.

Cameras mounted on Tornado jets capture high-res images of ISIS buildings and weaponry on the ground, which are then beamed back to a secret base in Akrotiri, Cyprus.

Air force experts are then able to use the goggles to map out exactly which targets are to be bombed.

A Lieutenant from the RAF's Tactical Imagery Intelligence Wing told The Sun on Sunday: “This gives us the edge. If they’re above ground we’ll find them.”

He said the British analysts are highly-regarded among the coalition taking the fight to ISIS in Syria.

Russia released dramatic images of targets being pulverised by its air force.

The Kremlin has launched a massive bombing campaign to destroy militant group's oil-smuggling convoys into Turkey.

The illicit trade accounts for a huge proportion of ISIS finances, and cutting it off has become a priority in the battle against the terrorists.

The Russian ministry of defence released videos and photos apparently showing air strikes on huge columns of oil tankers.

Seventeen convoys have been struck by the Russian air force, the Kremlin claims - striking a major blow against ISIS.

Russia claims it has destroyed 2,000 oil tankers since it entered the campaign in Syria in September, the Telegraph reports.

Syria analysts have suggested, however, that the briefing may actually be a propaganda drive by the Kremlin in its poitical dispute with Turkey over a downed Russia aircraft, Thesun reported.
