France has destroyed an Islamic State (IS) logistics depot in its first airstrikes against the militant group in Iraq.
President Francois Hollande said Rafale fighter jets, accompanied by support planes, "entirely destroyed" the depot in the north of the country.
Iraq's military spokesman said four morning airstrikes killed dozens of fighters.
"Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal - to weaken this terrorist organisation and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities," Mr Hollande said. "There are always risks in taking up a responsibility. I reduced the risks to a minimum."
