French and Russian air strikes in northern Syria have killed at least 33 terrorists with the Islamic State group in the last 72 hours, foreign media reports.

Dozens of ISIS fighters were also wounded in the raids on weapons depots, barracks and checkpoints in the terrorists' de facto Syrian capital of Raqa, Rami Abdel Rahman, and director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told media.

France intensified strikes on Raqa following last week's attacks in Paris that left 129 dead, with warplanes carrying out dozens of raids on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Russia also pounded Raqa with long-range bombers and sea-launched missiles on Tuesday, after Moscow confirmed that a bomb attack brought down a Russian passenger jet over Egypt last month, killing all 224 people on board.
