AFP PhotoA U.S.-led coalition carried out at least 30 air strikes in Syria against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants in the northern province of Raqqa on Nov. 29, a monitoring group said.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the air strikes hit ISIL positions in the northern outskirts of Raqqa city, a major stronghold of the hardline Islamist militants.
The areas hit by the strikes included the 17th Division, a Syrian army base that ISIL seized in July, the Observatory said.
