Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria the Nusra Front has cemented its takeover of wide areas of northwestern Idlib province after fighters defected from two U.S.-backed rebel militias.The Observatory said that "dozens" of members of the Syria Rebel Front had defected from the group and joined the ranks of either the Nusra Front or an allied fighting group called Jund al-Aqsa, while several pro-opposition media outlets reported that fighters from both U.S.-backed rebel groups had experienced defections.Anti-regime activists in the area said a reconnaissance flight was observed over parts of Idlib province Sunday, presumably carried out by the U.S.-led coalition that has targeted both the Nusra Front and ISIS.Idriss Nassan, a Syrian Kurdish official, said Iraqi Kurds using long-range artillery had joined the battle against ISIS Saturday night.
