French led airstrikes have killed 33 suspected militants in the Syrian province of Raqqa, which is said to be an ISIS (also known as ISIL, IS and Daesh) stronghold in the war torn nation.

The airstrikes intensified on Sunday following Friday’s fatal terror attacks in Paris, with French President François Hollande’s government said to be the main driving force behind attempts to wipe out ISIS in Syria.

EN4 spoke to the Ministry Of Defence, who said that on Monday a 500lb Paveway bomb was dropped from an RAF Tornado jet as part of British strikes on ISIS in Mosul and Sinjar, Iraq.

According to the Ministry of Defence,  David Cameron, Prime Minster is still pushing for airstrikes to target ISIS in Iraq, which would potentially take place before Christmas.

Mr Cameron said in PMQ’s today that the backing of the UN would be ‘preferable’ but not vital if Britain were to launch air strikes in Syria.
