Royal Air Force (RAF) attacked the three terrorists when they were travelling in a vehicle at Raqqah in Syria, which is considered as one of the strongholds of ISIS.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron too confirmed the reports about Rayeed and Ruhul. Writing on micro-blogging site Twitter, Cameron tweeted, "I've told the House of Commons that the ISIL terrorist, Reyaad Khan, who was plotting attacks on the UK, was killed by an RAF aircraft."

It seems a major terror attack has been averted by the Royal Air Force (RAF) as the slain militants reportedly had plotted to kill the Queen and her family members.

The royal family members, including the Queen and Prince Charles and others attended the ceremony for VJ Day, i.e. Victory over Japan Day, in Whitehall on Aug 15.

VJ Day is the day on which Japan surrendered in World War II, in effect ending the war.
