The Canadian military conducted its first airstrike on an ISIS target in Syria Wednesday, according to the Department of National Defense.

Two Canadian McDonnell Douglas CF-18s were involved in the airstrike against an ISIS garrison near Raqqa, Syria, the department said in a release. Raqqa is about 100 miles east of the embattled city of Aleppo. The department added that the Canadian Armed Forces aircrew and aircraft have safely returned to base.

A total of 10 coalition aircraft, including six from the U.S., took part in the airstrike. The nationality of the two remaining aircraft was not disclosed.
