France launched a second wave of airstrikes on targets located in the Syrian city of Raqqa, reports Interfax citing an interview of French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian with Europe 1.

According to the Minister, the reason the airstrikes were launched in that area was because intelligence reports came in that Islamic militants intending to carry out terrorist acts in Europe were there.
