US air strike hits military point in Syria

A military source on the Syrian government side said on Friday that a US air strike against a Damascus-backed militia the day before hit "one of our military points", without elaborating, state media outlets reported.

The air strike late on Thursday killed several people and caused material damage, the source said, adding that this hampered efforts by the Syrian army and its allies to fight Islamic State. The US military carried out the strike on the militia as they headed towards the al-Tanf military base in southern Syria.
