(by Lucas Tomlinson, Jennifer Griffin via Fox News) -- The U.S. military is sharing intelligence with the French military about Islamic State targets inside the terror group’s de-facto headquarters in Raqqa, Syria, and has pledged to broaden such cooperation, a senior American defense official told Fox News on Monday.

The official said the exchange included intelligence from coalition forces on “a couple of big targets that the French had been wanting to hit” and started Saturday night -- about 24 hours after terror attacks linked to the group killed at least 129 people in Paris.   

France began air strikes on Sunday against the Islamic State in Syria, a stronghold for the militant group.

“The coalition gave them 100 percent support,” a U.S. military source said. “We will continue with a combination of coalition targets and specific French requested targets for the foreseeable future. … We are having good results.”

On the same day of the French air strikes, the U.S. military destroyed 116 ISIS fuel trucks Sunday in Abu Kamal, Syria in the Euphrates River basin near the Syrian-Iraq border, according to the latest strike report from the U.S. Central Command released Monday.

A military official with knowledge of the strikes said that recently-arrived U.S. Air Force A-10 Warthogs from Incirlik Air Base, in Turkey, carried out the strikes on the fuel farm.

The official said previously the fuel trucks were off limits to U.S. military strike aircraft. When asked if the Paris attacks would bring about a change in the U.S. military’s rules of engagement, the official said that the truck drivers were warned first before the bombs fell.

“We dropped leaflets, warning the drivers to scatter,” said an official who had been briefed on the strike.  “Next we strafed the area [with 30mm cannons] before the dropping bombs” from the warthogs.

The official said separately that F-15E Strike Eagles, which arrived to Incirlik late last week, participated in their first strikes against the Islamic State over the weekend, separate from the attack against the fuel farm.
