French lawmakers on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly to extend air strikes against Islamic State group targets in Syria, which have been stepped up following the Paris attacks.
The National Assembly approved a motion to prolong the operation by 515 votes to four, with 10 abstentions.
During the debate, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said: "France mourns its dead but doesn't give in. France fights and will fight ruthlessly until it reaches its goal: the destruction of our enemy Daesh (Islamic State)."
Since the Paris attacks took place, France has moved its flagship Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier into the Mediterranean - ensuring it is better placed to bombard IS positions across Iraq and Syria.
