US aircraft attacked "Al-Qaeda" training camp in Syria, more than 100 militants have been eliminated. It was reported by "Radio Liberty".

It was the last anti-terrorist operation by US aircraft during the presidency of Barack Obama. Air strikes, according to the American side, were conducted late in the evening of January 19 at the west of Aleppo, near the Turkish border.

US military officials have reported that the slain militants were "key" members of the "Al-Qaeda" group. Most of them are believed to have arrived in Syria in 2016 to create a stronghold. It is believed that they were not included in the "Jabhat Fateh al-Sham" opposition group, which is associated with "Al-Qaeda”, until 2016.

On Thursday, the Pentagon disclosed that it had carried out an airstrike on Tuesday in Idlib Province that killed Mohammad Habib Boussadoun al-Tunisi, whom it described a Qaeda leader linked to plots against Western targets.
