According to France’s defence ministry, the bombing started hours after the country’s national police launched an international manhunt for a dangerous suspect wanted for his involvement in the Paris attacks.
The French Ministry of Defense said it targeted a command post and a terrorist training camp, dropping 20 bombs on Isis’s de facto capital in Raqqah, Syria.
The first target includes a command post, a jihadist recruiting centre and a weapons warehouse.
Ten French fighter jets were launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan in an operation carried out in coordination with U.S. Military Command.
Hours earlier, the French national police said it was looking for Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old French national who was born in Brussels, for his involvement in the attacks.
