France Defense Ministry has announced that they have used Cruise missiles against Daesh positions, training sites and logistics depot in Iraq for the first time.

The missiles were used for the first time in Libya in 2011 strikes and cost about 850,000 euros ($930,000) each, according to the French press.

France has stepped up strikes on Daesh targets in Syria and Iraq after the organization claimed responsibility for shootings and suicide bombings in Paris last month that left 130 people dead; Routers reported.
