LONDON Britain has killed two of its own nationals who had been fighting for Islamic State (IS) and plotting attacks on British soil, in its first air strike in Syria, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.
Despite not having a parliamentary mandate to take military action in Syria, Cameron told lawmakers that, as an act of self-defense, Briton Reyaad Khan had been targeted and killed in a precision drone strike in the country.
