France carried out air strikes early on Friday against oil facilities in Syria near Daesh's sites in the Syrian city of Raqqa, France 24 reported Friday.

The remarks were made by French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian during a visit to a military base in Jordan.

Le Drian told forces on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf Thursday that the war against Daesh was starting to bear its fruit.

"The war (against Daesh) is being played out here," he said aboard the Charles de Gaulle, which is participating in the US-led coalition carrying out air strikes on Daesh in Syria and Iraq.

"The strategy is starting to pay off. Everywhere our sensors show that Daesh is going on the defensive... as shown in the loss of Ramadi," he said.
