Breaking: France Drops ‘Twenty Bombs’ on Key ISIS Targets

RAQQA, Syria — French fighter jets dropped 20 bombs on key ISIS targets in Raqqa, Syria on Sunday in retribution for the deadly massacre in Paris on Friday that killed over 130.

The airstrike, carried out in conjunction with the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, struck an ISIS command center, a jihadist training center and an ammunition depot.

“The raid … including 10 fighter jets, was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan,” a statement from the French Ministry of Defense read. “Twenty bombs were dropped.”

As previously reported, French President Francois Hollande vowed that the nation would “be merciless toward the barbarians of Islamic State group” after ISIS claimed responsibility for the coordinated multi-site terror attack in Paris.

“We will work alongside our allies to fight this terrorist menace,” he stated. “France is strong, and even if she is wounded, she will get up always and nothing will hold her down, even if we are feeling the grief now … We will defend ourselves.”

“Even if France is wounded, she will rise,” Hollande declared.

French police have formally identified one of Friday’s attackers as 29-year-old Ismael Omar Mostefai, a French citizen who had been watched for his ties to terror groups. He perished in detonating his suicide vest during the attack. French media have also named Bilal Hadfi and Ibrahim Abdeslam as being behind the assault.

    Just don’t bomb them. DESTROY THEM! Everyone last of them. Leave nothing! I am nauseated by the candlelight vigils, buildings lit-up in the colors of France, and all the misty-eyed speeches by celebrities. Here is a useful list to help our liberal friends to identify the problem:

    The Hebdo attack were Muslims.
    The Shoe Bomber was a Muslim.
    The Beltway Snipers were Muslims.
    The Fort Hood Shooter was a Muslim.
    The underwear Bomber was a Muslim.
    The U-S.S. Cole Bombers were Muslims.
    The Madrid Train Bombers were Muslims.
    The Bafi Nightclub Bombers were Muslims.
    The London Subway Bombers were Muslims.
    The Moscow Theatre Attackers were Muslims.
    The Boston Marathon Bombers were Muslims.
    The Pan-Am flight #93 Bombers were Muslims.
    The Air France Entebbe Hijackers were Muslims.
    The Iranian Embassy Takeover, was by Muslims.
    The Beirut U.S. Embassy bombers were Muslims.
    The Libyan U.S. Embassy Attack was by Muslims.
    The Buenos Aires Suicide Bombers were Muslims.
    The Israeli Olympic Team Attackers were Muslims.
    The Kenyan U.S, Embassy Bombers were Muslims.
    The Saudi, Khobar Towers Bombers were Muslims.
    The Beirut Marine Barracks bombers were Muslims.
    The Besian Russian School Attackers were Muslims.
    The first World Trade Center Bombers were Muslims.
    The Bombay & Mumbai India Attackers were Muslims.
    The Achille Lauro Cruise Ship Hijackers were Muslims.
    The September 11th 2001 Airline Hijackers were Muslims.

    French President Hollande declared a state of emergency and put the entire city of Paris under lockdown. This has been the first mandatory curfew in Paris since 1944. The reason why all citizens of Paris were made prisoners in their own homes is because of an inability to confront the root cause of the problem–Islam.

    And our Muslim pResident is allowing these terrorist to immigrate here. Why is no one stopping him?

      Some don’t think what happened in Paris will happen here. They have forgotten it already has happened here. And as we take in the refugees it will happen again and again. We will not be able to stop them.When we let them i it will be too late.If we do not do something now we will become prisoners of Islam. They kill their prisoners.

        When they strike the US (and they will) they will not use guns because they know most Americans are armed. They will blow themselves up, use car/truck bombs and/or dirty bombs.

          I know it will happen. It is only a matter of time.

        half our citizens are brain dead liberals

    My question is where did these sudden targets France suddenly dropped these bombs on? Did they already know where these jihadists were and why did it take this to target them or take this tragic incident to cause them to take them out? The U.S. and other countries know what to target and where, they only target when it benefits politically and they only do enough to try to appease the people, they could have taken them all out long ago, it’s all an agenda.

    Bomb to kill the terrorists!!! Yet, there are many around the world, just waiting…..

    • concerned

      Bomb as many as possible and pick the rest off as we find them. Don’t take prisoners.

  • vnvet

    If they knew the locations before why did they wait? Puzzling

    • celticwaryor

      Because – if I have this straight – is that the US is leading the air campaign. And you know that hussein doesn’t want to get too involved as not to upset his muzzie friends. Hopefully this change will come about with France getting down right serious about taking the fight to them. Russia hit some major targets this past week as well!! They need to hit those convoys of all those shiny new Toyota pickups. Those were super targets of opportunity that they missed…light em up!!

  • concerned

    Bomb these neanderthals into oblivion..night and day.

      America has been tolerating the quiet growing numbers here in America. One day, snap, that will come back to haunt us. Everyone needs to wake up and stand up to them. They can’t grow, if we don’t lay down and be in fear of them.

    Too little….too late.
