Syria war: Air strikes kill 25 jihadists in Idlib province, monitors say

Air strikes in northern Syria have killed at least 25 members of a prominent jihadist group, including senior figures, monitors say.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says it is not clear who carried out the attack against the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham group, formerly known as Nusra Front. Russia and Turkey say the group is not included in a ceasefire deal in Syria. Meanwhile, rebel groups say they are halting preparations for peace talks.

A statement signed by a number of groups cited “many big breaches” by the Syrian government and its allies as a reason. The ceasefire was brokered by Turkey and Russia last Thursday and has mostly held since then. Peace talks were planned for later this month in Astana, Kazakhstan.(BBC,2017)
