PARIS - France launched a new air strike overnight in Syria against an Islamic State training camp and further strikes will follow, Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Friday.

"France hit Daesh in Syria last night in Raqqa... It is not the first time, nor will it be the last time," Le Drian said on Europe 1 radio.

"French Rafale jets delivered bombs on this training camp and the targets were met," he added.
