Washington – The Pentagon on Friday said it assumed no part in the passing of the leader of Syria's biggest agitator coalition, who was killed in an air strike close Aleppo.
Abu Omar Saraqeb, who drove the previous al-Qaeda offshoot Al-Nusra Front, which went up against the new name of Fateh al-Sham Front in July, apparently kicked the bucket when a strike hit a meeting of agitator pioneers.
The jihadist Fateh al-Sham is a main individual from the Army of Conquest partnership, which was meeting on Thursday night, killing Saraqeb and another dissident administrator.
"It was not a US strike," Pentagon representative Captain Jeff Davis said.
"Whatever happened there, it was not something that the US military did."
A US-drove coalition is directing day by day strikes in northern Syria, however its attention is on ISIS and it has avoided the slaughter unfurling in Aleppo, where Russian and Syrian government strengths are engaging revolutionaries.
"We don't have any motivation to be in Aleppo, it's not a spot where ISIS is," Davis said.
A US resistance official later said that Russia was the "main suspect" in the strike.
