French strikes hit ISIS training camp in Syria

Published: Updated:

French warplanes carried out air strikes on Sunday on an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) training camp in eastern Syria, President Francois Hollande said.

“Our forces hit their target,” near the town of Deir Ezzor, said Hollande, hours after ordering France’s first strikes in Syria.

The news came after France said in the same day it had carried out its first air strikes against the ISIS in Syria following nearly three weeks of surveillance flights.
