Drone strike kills at least 1 in northwestern Syria


BEIRUT (AP) — Rescue workers and a war monitor say a drone strike has hit a vehicle traveling on a rural road in rebel-controlled northwestern Syria, killing at least one person. The Civil Defense team, known as White Helmets, said the unidentified body from the Monday attack was lifted from the car along the Idlib-Binnish road in east of Idlib province. U.S. Central Command said American forces conducted a “kinetic counterterrorism strike” near Idlib province targeting a senior leader of the militant group al-Qaeda. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in Britain, said the vehicle carried a militant from one of the radical groups operating in the province.
