A U.S.-led coalition that was set up to fight ISIS bombed the Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and another radical faction in northwest Syria overnight, rebels and residents said Thursday.One strike on a base near the northern city of Aleppo killed at least six Nusra fighters, the Observatory said, adding that the hardline Islamist group Ahrar al-Sham was also hit overnight.Last week the group seized control of areas of Idlib province from Western-backed rebel leader Jamal Maarouf, head of the Syria Revolutionaries' Front in northern Syria, confiscating its weapons.The retreat marked a big blow to the non-Islamist opponents of Assad, who have generally struggled against better armed and equipped Islamist groups including Nusra Front and ISIS.
