Russia has hit the ISIS ‘capital’ Raqqa with cruise missiles – just hours after saying the passenger jet brought down in Egypt had been bombed.

The strikes come after it was revealed French jets had pounded targets in the terrorists’ Syrian stronghold, including a command centre and a recruitment base for jihadists.

Russia has now launched a ‘significant’ number of strikes which are reported to have included long-range bombers and sea-launched cruise missiles, a US defense official said.

There was no immediate confirmation from Moscow, but Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier vowed vengeance as Moscow confirmed a bomb brought down a Russian passenger jet over Egypt last month, killing all 224 people aboard.

‘We are aware that over the past several hours Russia conducted a significant number of strikes in Raqa, some of which may have included sea-launched cruise missiles and long-range bombers,’ said the official.

Earlier today Vladimir Putin vowed to ‘punish’ those responsible for bringing down a Russian jet over the Sinai desert last month, after he confirmed that a bomb was responsible for the crash.
