French military video shows airstrikes against Islamic State in Iraq
The French military has released video showing French fighter jets taking off from Al Dhafra base, UAE and carrying out strikes against the militant Islamic State group
Two Rafale fighter jets accompanied by support planes targetted a logistics depot in northern Iraq that had been overrun by the militants.
Four laser-guided bombs struck the Iraqi military base, and hit a munitions and fuel depot, according to a French military official.
The attack made France the first foreign country to publicly add military muscle to United States airstrikes against the terrorist group, which has drawn criticism around the world and in a unanimous UN Security Council resolution for its barbarity.
French President Francois Hollande said the target was "entirely destroyed." Dozens of extremist fighters were also killed in the four strikes, according to Iraq's military spokesman.
