France to deploy Charles De Gaulle carrier to help operations against Islamic State
France will deploy its aircraft carrier to support operations against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq to bolster Paris' firepower in the region amid international efforts to launch Syrian peace talks.
French warplanes struck their first targets in Syria at the end of September. It was the first country to join the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq and has also provided limited logistical support to Syrian rebels it considers moderate, including Kurds. reuters
