The French Defense Ministry announced destroying a command post and a training camp after the sorties were completed. 12 warplanes, including 10 fighter bombers, dropped 20 separate bombs on the targets in and around Raqqa.

“The first target destroyed was used by Daesh (another Arabic acronym for IS) as a command post, jihadist recruitment center and arms and munitions depot. The second held a terrorist training camp.”

The bombing missions were conducted in coordination with American forces; the planes left from bases inside Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

These airstrike come two days after French President Francois Hollande vowed to attack the Islamic State group … ‘without mercy’. This followed the radical Islamic State jihadist group admitting responsibility on Saturday for orchestrating the lethal, widespread attacks on France’s capital city of Paris.

At least 129 people died in Friday night’s shootings in Paris cafes, suicide bombings near France’s national soccer stadium, and a hostage-taking inside a concert hall. Hundreds more were injured, dozens critically.
