Airstrikes Kill 40 IS Militants in Syria

At least 40 militants with the so-called Islamic State have been killed in airstrikes in Syria, a British-based monitoring group reports.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a convoy of 16 vehicles was hit as it drove through an eastern part of Hama province overnight, BBC reported.
The observatory’s head said the planes could be Russian or Syrian but were not from the US-led coalition.
Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP charred bodies of fighters were at the scene.
The observatory, which monitors the conflict in Syria using a network of sources on the ground, said the convoy was traveling from the IS de facto capital of Raqqa when it was attacked.
Russia began its airstrikes over Syria at the end of last month, saying they were targeting IS and other militant groups opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The US-led coalition, which has been carrying out its own airstrikes against IS, said it will not be cooperating with Russia’s mission.
