Damascus, Syria – On Sunday, an air strike hit a military camp of the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front in northwestern Syria, killing at least nine of its fighters.
Among the dead were at least four foreign fighters. The air strike hit close to Atimah at the Syrian border with Turkey in Idlib province, according to the Syrian Observatory.
Last week, a top military commander and several other leading members of the al-Nusra Front were killed in an airstrike in Idlib. The pro-Assad army said it carried out the attack.
However, a Syrian rebel leader reported that the latest airstrike had been carried out by the U.S.-led international coalition’s warplanes.
The U.S.-led coalition has been attacking locations of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) in Syria and Iraq for months. Only on rare occasions has the coalition targeted the al-Nusra Front in northern Syria.
