This possibility was discussed 4 September at the Defense Council with the participation of President Francois Hollande. Earlier, "the participation of France in operations in Syria was completely excluded," the newspaper writes.
“The massive immigration of Syrians, the inability of the coalition to suppress ISIS, and also the likelihood of Russia's increased military presence in the region, may push the French authorities to take a decision on air strikes. It will not be a mistake to continue actions where there is a struggle against IS ”- said the source in the government.
According to the newspaper, "military intervention by France may begin in the coming months, for which it is planned to use Dassault Mirage 2000 fighters, which are based in Jordan, or Rafale, based in the UAE."
