Putin admits a terrorist attack and sends missiles into Raqqa.

Vladimir Putin said Russia will intensify its air strikes on Islamist militants in Syria and launch a global manhunt after the Kremlin concluded that terrorists had placed a bomb on a Russian passenger jet which broke up over Egypt last month.

We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them

Until now, Russia had played down assertions from Western countries that the crash, in which 224 people were killed on Oct. 31, was the work of terrorists, saying it was important to let the official investigation run its course.

Reuters are reporting that the Russian military has already launched heavy ordinance airstrikes against the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa in Syria which include cruise missiles from their ships in the Mediterranean Sea.

France Bombs ISIS Capital

French military planes bombed a series of ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria, on Sunday in what officials described as a major bombardment.

The targets included a command center, a recruitment center, an ammunition storage base and a training camp for the terror group, said Mickael Soria, press adviser for France’s defense minister.

ISIS claims Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate. The airstrikes come two days after ISIS claimed responsibility for a series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. France’s President described those attacks as “an act of war.”

Twenty bombs were dropped and 12 aircraft were involved in Sunday’s airstrikes, Soria said.

All of the targets were destroyed, he said.
