French Jets Pound ISIS Capital Of Raqqa

French Jets have begun a bombing ISIS positions in their Syrian Capital of Raqqa. According to sources on the ground in Raqqa there were 10 French jets carrying out the bombing runs and thus far over 30 bombs have been dropped.

Its still unclear if this is an expansion of the french operations in the fight against Raqqa or a retaliation to Friday night's attacks in Paris for which ISIS claimed responsibility.

France does have military assets in the region with them recently moving their aircraft carrier group the Charles Se Gaulle into position to strike targets in Syria and Iraq. It is most likely that French Rafele Jets took off from this air craft carrier to carry out today's strikes on Raqqa.
