France just dispatched the largest aircraft carrier in EU to help fight ISIS

PARIS: France just dispatched the European Union’s largest aircraft carrier to bolster efforts to destroy the Islamic State’s operations.

The Charles de Gaulle — roughly the length of three football fields — left for the Middle East on Wednesday. It’s carrying 20 planes, which will nearly triple France’s firepower in the region. The warship is also nuclear-powered.

France started carrying out massive airstrikes against ISIS in Syria on Sunday evening after the Paris attacks on Friday.
