Following the attack in Nice, France has publicly expressed their outrage. Now, the French Ministry of Defense has just confirmed the massive bombing of Raqqa, the “capital” of Syria and the headquarters of ISIS.
According to reports form an Italian news source, the operation was conducted in coordination with US forces. The US intelligence department was reportedly instrumental in providing the necessary information needed to identify ISIS targets.
France has now dropped at least 20 bombs in Syria: 12 aircrafts have been employed, including 10 fighter jets.
Social media users in France have also been quick to express their frustration and anger. #KillISIS in now a viral hashtag.
The reaction of the French government even continues at home.
“I want to combat the preachers of hate, we have to act quickly,” French Minister Bernard Cazeneuve commented, adding that the Freench government will start shutting down mosques that preach hate and violence.
