France Intensifies Assault On Islamic State

A police raid in the Parisian suburb led to the deaths of “two extremists and seven arrests, while a French aircraft carrier headed to the eastern Mediterranean to intensify the bombardment of the terror group’s positions in Syria.”

In a seven-hour assault that began at 4:30 a.m., one young woman “blew herself up, and another extremist was killed by bullets and hand grenades.” Shortly after the raid, President Hollande stated at a conference of French mayors, that France was at “war” with the Islamic State.

President Francois Hollande is scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama and President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next week to strengthen the “anti-Islamic State campaign.
