BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:05 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition reportedly carried out a lethal series of airstrikes over the Idlib countryside on Tuesday, killing and wounding scores of jihadist rebels near the Turkish border-crossing.
The primary target was a Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) base located near the town of Sarmada that had several members of this jihadist organization inside at the time of impact.
According to the reports released by activists in social media, about 25-30 people were killed as a result of these airstrikes. Although coalition airforce allegedly targeted JFS militants, there was unconfirmed information about several prisoners captured by jihadists among victims of the aforementioned attack.
