The French Defence Ministry has confirmed that French citizens were present in an ISIL training camp that was hit by French aircraft last week.

The French prime minister is currently on a visit to Jordan:” As soon as we learn a terrorist attack is being planned in Syria, we have an obligation to strike ISIL in the name of legitimate defense and we will keep doing that, no matter what nationality,” he said.

Meanwhile Iraqi aircraft have hit the convoy of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al – Baghdadi.

The attack happened in the western Anbar province.

Hospital authorities in the area say several jihadists were killed or injured in the strike, but al- Baghdadi was not among them.
