France warns about more terrorist attacks, bombs Daesh in Raqqa

Twelve French aircrafts attacked the city of Raqqa (in Syria) with 20 bombs last night, responding to the Paris terrorist attacks.



Raqqa is the self-proclaimed capital city of the Daesh jihadists, and this military action targeted a “command centre, a training camp and a munitions depot”, the French defence minister Kean-Yves Le Drian said.

On Sunday, a G20 meeting (which gathers the richest countries in the world and the emergent nations) started in Turkey. President Erdogan said he hoped the meeting “becomes a historic moment in the fight against terrorism and in the refugee crisis”. Turkey has suffered several attacks of Daesh this year.



 



‘REFUGEES ARE VICTIMS, NOT AUTHORS’



New informations on Monday confirmed that one of the terrorists landed in Greece 5 weeks ago.



European Comission President, Jean-Claude Juncker said: “Those who organised, who perpetrated, the attacks are the very same people who the refugees are fleeing, and not the opposite.”



“And so there is no need for an overall review of the European policy on refugees.”



 



VALLS: TERRORIST ATTACKS COULD HAPPEN SOON AGAIN



Meanwhile, the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Monday: “We know that operations were being prepared and are still being prepared, not only against France but other European countries too.”



France would be living with the threat of terror attacks “days and weeks” and “for a long time”, he added.



 



Citizens left messages in the sites of the attacks.



 



ARRESTS IN FRENCH CITIES ON MONDAY



The police carried out raids in Lyon, Grenoble, Toulouse and other French cities. Five of the seven terrorists have been identified.



The United Nations estimate that 120,000 left Syria since the beginning of October
