French fighter jets launched their biggest raids in Syria to date targeting an ISIS stronghold in Raqqa just two days after the group claimed coordinated attacks in Paris that killed about 130 people, officials said Sunday.

The raid included at least 10 fighter jets and was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, officials with the Defense Ministry said in a statement.

“Twenty bombs were dropped,” the statement said, adding that the mission had taken place Sunday evening.

“The first target destroyed was used by ISIS as a commanding post. A jihad recruitment center. And a depot for arms and munitions. The second target housed a terrorist training camp,” the ministry said.
