UK Flew 50 Surveillance Mission Over Gaza - Report

The Shadow R1. (The Royal Air Force)

The United Kingdom military has flown 50 surveillance missions over the Palestinian Gaza Strip in support of Israel since December, Declassified UK revealed on January 18.

The flights have taken off from the UK’s controversial air base on Cyprus, Royal Air Force (RAF) Akrotiri, The British plane used in the missions is the Shadow R1, a modified Beechcraft aircraft that the RAF uses for intelligence gathering.

The British flights began on December 3 when two R1s flew over Gaza. The flights have continued nearly daily up, with around half the days featuring two flights. On 3 January, there were three R1 flights over the Strip. On average, each flight lasted around six hours, according to Declassified UK.

The UK Ministry of Defence announced on December 2 that it would begin surveillance flights over Gaza “in support of the ongoing hostage rescue activity”.

“The safety of British nationals is our utmost priority,” the UK Ministry of Defence said in a statement at the time. “In support of the ongoing hostage rescue activity, the Ministry of Defence will conduct surveillance flights over the eastern Mediterranean, including operating in air space over Israel and Gaza.”

The ministry added that the surveillance aircraft will be unarmed and will be tasked solely to locate hostages held by the Hamas Movement in Gaza.

“Only information relating to hostage rescue will be passed to the relevant authorities responsible for hostage rescue,” the ministry said.

Five British nationals went missing after the October 7 surprise attack on Israel. Last week, the UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron confirmed that Hamas holds just two British hostages.

The fact that no attempt to rescue any British hostage has been made since the start of the RAF surveillance flights over Gaza, raises suspicions that the UK is not just looking for its hostages, but collecting all sorts of intelligence to support the Israeli war effort.

It’s worth noting that the United States has been also flying MQ-9 combat drones over Gaza in “support of hostage recovery efforts” since last November.

btw. i am still in shock that the muslims in uk tolerate this shit (uk’s support of israel) without killing at least 200 or 300 uk policemen or governmental clerks on the streets of london, burmingham, or else. or at least storming some uk-jewish owned media stations or the city of london and putting the prime jew and in fact israel-founder lord rothchild and his whole family on a pike !!!

piece of pagan islamic scum

Just me

all regimes worldwide are criminal and ridiculous. without the regimes that hold people hostage all over the world there would be no wars and no nonsense… i would like to describe our world like this: regimes that are allies and regimes that are enemies, plus regimes that are in alliances. nato against russia and china, iran and co and the west against the east and the east etc….regimes are constantly waging wars and having disputes.


agreed, i have the same perspective, i don’t trust any of these major (geo)/political entities. i would only add that you can’t fully separate a government from the nation, there are too many people who have embraced evil and tacitly support the actions of their governments thereby giving them power. only jesus christ can save us now.
