American air force helicopters hit terror targets inside Syria close to the Iraqi border. Media reports from Syria claim eight people were killed and fourteen wounded in the air strikes which took place near the border town of Abu Kamal on Sunday night. A US official in Washington confirmed the raid said the attack targeted elements of a robust foreign fighter logistic network and that due to Syrias failure to act, the United States was taking the matter into its own hands. The official said special forces hit a network involved in sending fighters from North Africa and elsewhere in the Middle East to Syria , terror targets possibly linked to the Global Jihad and Al Qaida.
