In their biggest raid in Syria to date, French fighter jets on Sunday bombed the Islamic State’s stronghold in Raqqa. This comes two days after ISIS claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks in Paris that killed more than 130 people.
“The raid … including 10 fighter jets, was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Twenty bombs were dropped,” the statement said, adding that the mission had taken place this evening.
The fighter jets struck a command center, a recruitment center for jihadists, a munitions depot and a training camp for fighters, according to the defense ministry statement.
The operation was carried out in coordination with U.S. forces.
