Airstrike Kills 16 Militants In Syria

At least 16 senior militants, part of Nusra Front, have been killed, after an airstrike struck the disused air base where they were meeting.

An airstrike hit a Nusra Front meeting in northwestern Syria, killing 16 senior members of the al-Qaeda-linked group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday.

It was not clear if the airstrike, targeting the disused Abu al-Duhour air base, had been carried out by Russia or the United States, which have both mounted strikes against the group in Syria, said Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman.

He said the air base had been heavily bombed in the attack.
