Syria monitor: French jets target Islamic State camps, depot

BEIRUT - Heavy air strikes believed to have been carried out by French jets hit two of Islamic State's training camps and a suspected arms depot in and around the jihadist-held city of Raqqa in Syria overnight, a group monitoring the war said on Monday.
There were more than 30 explosions heard in the Raqqa city area, said Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
It was not immediately clear if all the blasts were caused by air strikes or other weaponry. Islamic State is restricting movement inside the city, making it difficult to collect information on any casualties, Abdulrahman added.
