French military officials on Thursday said France bombed Daesh positions in the Tikrit region of Iraq for the first time since the start of the international offensive against the jihadist militia.
A spokesman for France's armed forces said its forces struck IS positions Wednesday night "in the region of Tikrit" in what he said was France's first bombing in that area of Iraq since the start of the coalition mission against the radical militia. The spokesman did not say what weapons were used.
