Syrian government refutes U.S. claims of killing top Nusra commander

The Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faysal Miqdad released a statement on Tuesday denying the Pentagon's claim that the U.S. Air Force killed the prominent Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) commander "Abu Firas Al-Souri" in rural Idlib.

Miqdad added that the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out the series of airstrikes that killed the Nusra commander and 25 of his associates inside the village of Kafr Jalis.

The Pentagon took responsibility for the airstrike that killed Abu Firas Al-Souri, despite the scarcity of their airstrikes against the Al-Qaeda factions in Syria.
