    The French military was quick to hit the Islamic State terrorist group’s self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa, in retaliation for the Paris attacks which left 129 people dead on Friday.

    Six Rafale and four Mirage multirole fighters took off from bases in the United Arab Emirates and Jordan to strike terrorist targets in Syria's Raqqa, the self-proclaimed capital of ISIL, on Sunday. The video of the night raid was immediately published by the French military.
