More than 100 pro-Syrian forces killed after thwarted attack

WASHINGTON - More than 100 fighters aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were killed after US-led coalition and coalition-backed local forces thwarted a large, apparently coordinate attack late on Wednesday and early on Thursday, a US official said.

"Syrian pro-regime forces included approximately 500 personnel in a large, dismounted formation supported by artillery, tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and mortars," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity, to offer new details on the incident.
