Tue Oct 18, 2016 15:08:28

French fighter jets launched an airstrike on Monday night, targeting a depot of improvised explosive devices in the area of Mosul in Iraq.

Video distributed by the French military shows fighter aircrafts taking off and landing from aircraft carriers and airfields. The airstrike was part of the so-called Operation Chammal, which the Frency military has been conducting in Iraq and Syria. France joined the US-led coalition against the ISIS group in Iraq in September 2014 and expanded its campaign to Syria in September 2016.

Iraqi and Kurdish forces launched a multi-pronged offensive against the ISIS group in Mosul on Monday, reclaiming about a dozen villages south and east of the city, AP reported.
