#AceWorldNews – SYRIA – Nov.30 – US forces unleashed at least 30 air strikes against Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] forces in the northern Syrian province of Raqqa on Saturday, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Reuters reported.
The air strikes targeted militant positions in the northern suburbs of Raqqa city, a strategic stronghold of the Islamist group.
At least 50 extremists from the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) have been killed in US-led airstrikes in the past 24 hours in the town of Kobane, Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

US-led strikes also hit the 17th Division, a Syrian army base the Islamic State seized in July, the monitoring group reported.
