ALEPPO Warplanes of the US-led coalition on Sunday bombed ISIS positions in Syria’s northern Aleppo Governorate.

A major command centre for the Islamic State (ISIS) radical group was destroyed in an airstrike by the coalition’s airforces, military sources reported.

“The targeted building in Barih district of Aleppo was a key command centre for ISIS, where high ranking militant leaders used to meet to discuss military plans in the northern countryside of Aleppo,” Syrian opposition forces’ spokesman Salih al-Zein told ARA News.

At least 24 ISIS militants were reportedly killed in the attack, including jihadi leaders.

“The building was hit with at least two rockets fired by a US-led coalition’s warplane, causing heavy losses in ISIS ranks,” al-Zein said.

Also on Sunday, the coalition bombed an ISIS weaponry storage centre in Aleppo, local sources reported.
