French fighter jets have carried out a series of ‘massive’ air strikes on Raqqa, destroying a key ISIS command centre and training camp in Syria.
The heavy bombing raid comes just two days after the group claimed coordinated attacks in Paris that killed 128 people.
Their Defence Ministry said in a statement:
“The raid … including 10 fighter jets, was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Twenty bombs were dropped.
The French jets took off from air bases in Jordan and the United Arab Emirates and using intelligence from U.S. forces, the jets bombed a command centre, recruitment centre for jihadists, a munitions depot and a training camp for fighters.”
The revenge airstrikes in Syria comes as French police broadcast the name and image of Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old born in Brussels, across Europe, warning that he is very dangerous.
