France’s Fabius sees Syrian regime participating in anti-IS fight
In order to fight IS, “there must be two measures: bombings… and ground troops who cannot be ours, but who should be of the (opposition) Free Syrian Army, Sunni Arab forces, and why not regime forces too,” Fabius told RTL radio.
The main military target remains Raqa, the Syrian city that is the stronghold of IS, Fabius said. Russian and French jets have targeted the town in recent days.
“For us it is one of the main military targets, even the main one, because it is the nerve centre of Daesh, and the attacks against France were planned from there,” Fabius said, using another name for IS.
