A video, recorded on the deck of French Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, which arrived in the Mediterranean Sea to fight against terrorists of the Islamic State (IS) group, was showed by the BFM TV-channel.

It was reported that the warship is currently located in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Cyprus. The vessel moved the Rafale deck-based fighters to the area of the hostilities.

According to squadron’s General Vincent Desport, the arrival of the aircraft carrier to the area of the hostilities increases the number of French combat aircraft, capable to strike positions of terrorists, threefold. As of today, 12 fighter jets of the French Air Force, which are involved in attacks on terrorists as a part of the US-led coalition, are placed at airfields in Jordan and the UAE.

Earlier, it was reported that on September 29, military aircraft flew from the deck of the aircraft carrier and attacked positions of IS terrorists near the city of Mosul in Iraq. According to earlier reports, the Armed Forces of the US and France were preparing for a joint military operation, aimed at liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul from IS terrorists.

    If they flew over Syrian air space, did they get permission from Syria? If not then they violated Syria’s sovereignty. French basing their ship off Cyprus is not a good idea at all unless they are their under the NATO umbrella which is an indirect affront to Russia. Frog eaters need to go home.

      Go home and do what? Get run over by terrorists with trucks or get slaughtered like sheep inside theaters?

      At least there they can kill some terrorists and pretend they are doing something. While at the same time importing them by the thousands :D :D

        Actually what you suggest is a very good alternative; go home and get run over, slaughtered in theaters etc…
        No compassion for the French since it is OK for them to go to Libya and murder Gaddafi and throw the country in chaos. Involved in the disintegration of Yugoslavia.
        French deserve what happens to them in France.

          Agreed. Quit being U.S. lapdogs. Europe unable to think independently. They would do much for world peace and stability if they could.

          The only french I have pity for are the so called lower class. They get sh@t on by their government just like those of us in the US do by the criminals posing as the u.s. government. Both places get more job competition and no benefit at all by being flooded from the south.

        The French governments actions in Libya and the M.E. in general, created the conditions in their own country from which the people are now suffering, none of these terrorist attacks were formed in a void. Sarkozy the globalist scum bag is one of the most dangerous people in Europe who is presently running a new political campaign based on an anti multiculturalism platform, the very same scumbag who a few years previously stated that it was imperative that white French people began a policy of breeding with non whites in order that France become a true multicultural nation.
