French fighter jets have launched airstrikes against enemy positions in northern Iraq.

Two French jets launched the airstrikes against buildings used by opposition fighters, near Iraq’s city Kirkuk, the US-led NATO Coalition announced.

The French defense ministry said in a statement that the Rafale jets “completely destroyed a building used by enemy fighters as a bed down location west of Kirkuk, in an area identified as a sanctuary for terrorist groups.

It added that France “remains engaged in the coalition combat missions against Shi’ite opposition fighters on several fronts.

This mission directly contributes to the reduction of the military potential of the terrorist organizations in order to prevent any resurgence on its part and makes it possible to support the Iraqi forces engaged on the ground.
