Australia has launched its first airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria, Defense Minister Kevin Andrews confirmed on Wednesday.

Royal Australian Air Force fighter jets carried out a bombing mission against mobile targets in Syria on Monday and Andrews said the mission was a complete success.

"Two days ago, the Air Task Group completed its first strike against a Daesh (Islamic State) strike in eastern Syria, destroying an armored personnel carrier," Andrews told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
