Syrian Jets Hit Jihadists near Lebanon Border

Syrian warplanes on Thursday waged several raids on posts for the jihadist group Fateh al-Sham Front — al-Qaida’s former Syrian branch – near the Lebanese-Syrian border, media reports said.

A security source told LBCI television that the strikes targeted Syria’s western Qalamoun region near the Lebanese border.

Al-Mayadeen television for its part said Syrian fighter jets bombed militant posts in the outskirts of the Lebanese border town of Arsal.
