It has been reported that France will send artillery to assist Iraqi armed forces. It will further deploy an aircraft carrier to the region to give more advantages to Iraqi forces to fight against ISIS.
After Nice terrorist attack, President Francois Hollande has declared these things. Hollande spoke after a meeting with defense and security officials regarding the truck attack that left 84 people killed and over 300 injured during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice.
He stated, "We will support our allies in Syria and Iraq, but we won't put boots on the ground."
The aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle", which has already participated in various missions in the region, will return to boost airstrikes towards the end of September.
A terrorist apparently inspired by the IS, drove a heavy duty white truck along the Promenade des Anglais into the crowds celebrating the Bastille Day. The IS claimed responsibility for the attack.
To make security more advanced and vigil, a series of measures have been taken. Additional 10,000 soldiers have been added for maintaining security in France.
Mr. Hollande said that by the end of July 2016, 15,000 reserves from the gendarmerie, national police and army will be mobilized.
