Russian planes and missiles attacked Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) positions in Raqqa, a U.S. defense official told CBS News.
It is unknown if that is retaliation for the recentterror attacks in Paris or last month’s Russian passenger jet crash, which Moscow now says was definitely caused by a bomb, reports CBS News’ national security correspondent David Martin.
France, which already hit the capital with the biggest French air bombing yet over the weekend responding to the Paris terror attacks, launched fresh airstrikes in Syria overnight.
