French President Francois Hollande has said that his country is at war with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and pledged to destroy the terror group following the deadly 13/11 carnage that left 129 people dead.

According to the Daily Express, Hollande said, speaking to his country’s Congress, that France is at war.

He asserted that these attacks were “war”, adding that it was an assault on their values, their youth and their way of life.

Ever since ISIS was formed, it has attacked Paris, Denmark, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Libya, he said.
