WASHINGTON - The Pentagon on Friday denied that it had targeted a mosque in the Western Syrian province of Aleppo, saying that it had carried out a strike against an al Qaida meeting place and believed that it had killed dozens of militants.

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis, showing an image of the site of the attack, told reporters that manned and unmanned US aircraft had targeted and struck an al Qaida meeting place on Thursday in the village of al-Jina.

Davis said the US military currently does not assess any civilian casualties.
