HUNDREDS of Brit jihadis who joined ISIS are in the cross-hairs of the RAF after the new defence minister Gavin Williamson vowed to take them all out.
An estimated 270 fanatics from the UK are being hunted down one-by-one in Syria and Iraq to stop them returning home and unleashing terror on the streets of Britain.
Mr Williams told the Daily Mail: “Quite simply, my view is a dead terrorist can’t cause any harm to Britain,” he told the tabloid.
“We should do everything we can do to destroy and eliminate that threat,” he added.
It is understood that the jihadis would be hunted down by special forces before being taken out by airstrikes.
Planes and drones could be operated from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.
Although about 800 of Brits are believed to have travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight for ISIS some 130 are believed have perished.
Only a quarter remain and many remain publicly identified.
Here are six of the most wanted.
Born in London, 33-year-old Siddhartha Dhar travelled to Syria in 2014 shortly after being released on bail while under investigation for supporting terrorism.
He fled to Paris, then announced his reappearance in the Middle East by posting a photo of him clutching an assault rifle in one hand and a baby in another.
His role in the group’s brutal torture and killings has earned him the nickname “Jihadi Sid”.
Just last week he was also considered a key figure in the enslavement and sexual torture of thousands of Yazidi women.
His current whereabouts are unknown, though it also remains a possibility he has been killed.
Issam Abuanza was a British doctor from Sheffield who left behind his wife and two children to join ISIS in Syria in 2014.
Soon after a photograph emerged on Facebook showing Abuanza in medical scrubs and wearing a holster with a pistol.
In other pictures he is seen in combat fatigues, carrying an automatic rifle and reading the Koran.
The 38-year-old is thought to be the first practising NHS doctor to have joined ISIS.
Dr Abuanza’s wife told the BBC she and the rest of the family knew nothing of his plans.
Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary was a rapper from west London.
Bary, who used the rap names L Jinny or Lyricist Jinn, was once described as “one of the UK hip hop artists to watch”.
Some of his music was played on Radio 1.
But in 2013 Bary — one of six children — walked out of his family home, saying he was “leaving everything for the sake of Allah”.
He once tweeted he hoped to die as a martyr while fighting for Isis.
He said: “Imagine dieng shaheed in ramadan, ya Allah. How sick would that be.”
He also once wrote on Facebook: “If so-called terrorists are people who adhere to the Quran and Hadith/Sunnah (Muslim way of life), then I bear witness that I am a terrorist.”
He has also threatened beheadings and bombings in tweets and his web page includes the ISIS flag.
His Egyptian father Adel Abdel Bary is suspected of being involved in al-Qaeda bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 and was extradited to America in 2012.
Nasser Muthana is now 23, describes himself as a “soldier of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham”.
The former Cardiff schoolboy Nasser Muthana, 20, has in the past posted an online photograph showing a stash of IEDs – improvised explosive devices – in a garage.
And he added the stark warning: “So the UK is afraid I come back with the skills I’ve gained.”
But he has now faced a travel ban and a freeze on his assets in a bid to stop him returning.
Yet Muthana’s family and members of his community have said the sanctions will have no effect.
Omar Hussain, a former Morrison’s security guard, found infamy for his pathetic rants about food, chocolates and missing his mum’s cooking.
Originally from High Wycombe, the 30-year-old is thought to have been a recruiter for ISIS and published how-to guides describing how recruits could reach ISIS territory.
Just a year ago, the crackpot – who now calls himself Abu Saeed al-Britani – said he was pining for his mum’s food.
Asked what he missed from the UK said: “Mainly food. And my mum’s food of course Well her speciality was Asian dishes.”
The home-grown terrorist also posted a video calling for then PM David Cameron to send in British ground troops so they could be slaughtered in Syria and Iraq.
It was recently reported he may have been killed after falling silent on social media for an unusually long period of time. However, there has been no confirmation of this.
It also emerged this week that he was a registered sex offender in Britain – ironically, a crime for which he would hang if committed under Sharia law.
Little is known about 28-year-old Raymond Matimba, who hit the headlines only recently after his links to the Manchester Arena bombing emerged.
What we do know is he was a member of the so-called “Beatles”, a gang of Brit jihadis that also included Mohammed Emwazi, Junaid Hussain and Reyaad Khan.
Matimba was known to be an accurate sniper and is believed to have trained would-be jihadis in marksmanship.
But his most deadly role could have been in the radicalisation of Manchester bomber Salman Abedi.
It has been claimed the two were in contact before the attack, attended the same college and met at a South Manchester mosque before heading to the Middle East.
Raymond Matimba’s family say they have not heard from him since 2016, but his death has never been confirmed.
