Troops have been warned that this operation could be seen as the most important in the regiment's 75-year history and that their success is vital to keep people in the UK safe.
Any British jihadis from the black list who are captured alive will be handed over to the Iraqi authorities, tried and possibly executed if found guilty of terror offences.
The order was issued after intelligence suggested hundreds of British terrorists are attempting to return to the UK.
One senior source warned: 'Foreign fighters serving with IS have been told to return home and carry out attacks.

'We know there are hundreds of Brits who went to fight in Iraq and Syria, a lot have been killed but there could be up to 700 still alive.
'The race is now on to kill or capture those who are left.'
The Daily Star Sunday claims that Sally Jones, who calls herself Sakinah Hussain and is married to British jihadist fighter in Syria Junaid Hussain, is one of those on the list.
She vowed to behead Christians with a knife and is known to be active in Islamic State's recruiting team.
The list has been drawn up from intelligence provided by MI6 and CIA agents operating inside towns controlled by IS.
