Australian fighter jets have flown their first armed combat mission in Iraq against the Islamic State group but did not launch air strikes.

The Australian Defence Force said the Super Hornet aircraft conducted an air interdiction and close air support mission over northern Iraq overnight.

The flights are the first since the Australian government on Friday authorised strikes on Islamic State militants in Iraq.

Canberra is also deploying 200 soldiers to Iraq, including Special Forces, to advise Iraqi and Kurdish troops but has yet to receive the final approval from the Iraqi government.
