Airstrikes Hit IS Stronghold in Syria

More than 35 airstrikes hit the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group’s de facto capital in Syria overnight, killing at least 13 people and wounding many in the city of Raqqa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The monitoring group said it did not know if the planes were Russian or belonged to the international coalition led by the United States, which is attacking IS in Syria and neighboring Iraq, Reuters reported.
At least five members of the ultra-hardline militant group died in the attacks, the Observatory added.
Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva was quoted as saying on Friday that Syria’s Army was planning to attack Raqqa, backed by the Russian Air Force.
