US claims deadly north Syria strike
BEIRUT: The United States military says it carried out an airstrike in northern Syria against an al-Qaeda target, but denies targeting a mosque where 42 people were killed, according to an independent monitor. “We did not target a mosque, but the building we did target was
15m from a mosque that is still standing,” said a spokesman for the US Central Command. He later clarified that the precise location was the same one reported to have targeted Al-Jineh, in Aleppo province.
