Paris Attack: France Retaliates, Drops 20 Bombs On Islamic State Jihadi Training Camp


France, yesterday, retaliated to the Paris terror attack by launching deadly airstrikes on an Islamic State jihadi training camp in Syria.

The strike came as president Francois Hollande vowed to crush the extremist group who massacred 129 people on Friday night.

Less than 24 hours later, some 10 fighter jets pummeled the ISIS-held city of Raqqa with at least 20 bombs, according to the French defence ministry.

 

The warplanes are seen launching from an airbase in the United Arab Emirates in a video posted online.

They struck an Islamic State command and control centre, a jihadi recruitment centre, a munitions depot and a training camp, France government sources claim.

The full statement read: "The raid... including 10 fighter jets, was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Twenty bombs were dropped."

Syrian activists today claimed a museum, a stadium and a medical centre were hit by air strikes.

They also said as of yet, there are no reports of any civilians being killed or injured.
