For the first time, six Belgian F16s are to be used in strikes against ISIL positions over Syrian Territory.

Belgium is replacing the Netherlands in a year long mission, deploying 100 of its soldiers. The F16s will fly four times a day over Iraq and Syria.

The six F16s took off Tuesday morning headed for a military base in Jordan.
