France conducted major airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria today.
These new efforts, which come just two days after a series of ISIS led attacks in Paris killed 129, mark a significant intensification of French military efforts in the region.
According to French media, the assault has focused on Raqqa, a city in northern Syria and the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State.
“The first target destroyed was used by Daesh [ISIS] as a command post, jihadist recruitment centre and arms and munitions depot. The second held a terrorist training camp,” a statement from the French Ministry of Defense said.
No civilian casualties have been reported.
This new force follows a speech on Friday night, in which French President Francois Hollande said that his country’s response would be “without mercy.”
