France has launched a “massive” series of airstrikes on the Islamic State group’s de facto capital in Syria, according to French officials.

The strikes destroyed a jihadi training camp and a munitions dump.

The ministry spokesman said the strikes on Raqqa involved 12 aircraft, including 10 fighter jets, and 20 bombs were dropped.

The airstrikes were launched after terror attacks in Paris on Friday night killed 129 and wounded dozens more.
