French fighter jets destroy ‘Islamic State’ training camp


Six French fighter jets have targeted and destroyed a training camp run by the so-called ‘Islamic State’ group in eastern Syria, President Francois Hollande has confirmed.

The air strikes were the first in Syria by France as it expands its mission against IS.

“The camp was totally destroyed,” Mr Hollande said after arriving at the United Nations for a major development summit and the UN General Assembly.
