France vows to continue anti-Isis air strikes in Syria
« on: November 26, 2015, 11:48:44 AM »

The French Assembly has overwhelmingly supported President Francois Hollande's pledge to "wage a pitiless war" by voting to intensify air strikes against the Islamic State (Isis) in Syria. Out of 529 deputies, only four voted against and 10 abstained from voting in favour of the bill to extend French air force strikes.

"November 13 has changed the world as well as Europe. We have a responsibility, we have in particular a duty. There is no alternative, we must annihilate Islamic State," said French Prime Minister Manuel Valls while addressing the parliament. Speaking about the progress in Syria, Valls said that like its Russian and American counterparts, the French military has also destroyed petroleum facilities controlled by the IS.
