France Launches Air Strikes Against ISIS In Iraq

Hollande1Iraqi and French officials said that France conducted its first airstrikes in Iraq Friday against the militant Islamic State group, destroying a logistics depot.

Rafale fighter jets accompanied by support planes struck the depot in northern Iraq on Friday morning, and it was “entirely destroyed,” according to President Francois Hollande.

Iraq’s military spokesman said the airstrikes killed dozens of fighters.

“Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” said Hollande.
