French Aviation over ISIS

On Sunday’s attacks on the city of Ar-Rakk, a fortified bastion and an informal capital of the Islamic state, the command and recruitment center, the armory and the training camp were destroyed. According to information from the French defense ministry, 12 fighters took part in the operation, probably all French combat aircraft stationed in the Middle East.

This is, of course, only a small part of the machines that one of the world’s largest armies owns, but this number was adequate to the so-far from the areas of neighboring countries – let’s just say that France launched an air attack on ISIS in September last year. But even before Friday’s bombing, early in November, Charles de Gaulle, the aircraft carrier Rafale and Super Etendard, set off on the way to the eastern Mediterranean, to attack the Islamists.
