BEIRUT - A blast targeted senior members of al-Qaida's official Syria wing, the Nusra Front, in the northwest province of Idlib on Thursday and the group's General Military Commander Abu Humam al-Shami is believed to be wounded, jihadi sources said.
The sources said the explosion was caused by a US-led coalition air strike that hit a high-level Nusra Front meeting in the town of Salqin, near the border with Turkey. Reuters could not independently verify the information due to security and reporting restrictions.
