This is coolbert:
Syrian air force now also in action against ISIL?
"Syrian air raids ‘kill 31 jihadists in Raqqa’"
"At least 31 Islamic State militants and eight civilians died in Syrian air force raids on Sunday in the northern province of Raqqa, a stronghold of the jihadist fighters, a monitoring group said."
"The air force carried out 16 raids on the city of Raqqa and several more on the town of Tabqa in Raqqa province, killing at least 31 jihadists and eight civilians, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights."
Those civilians I fear hostages. ISIL can severely mitigate an air offensive by mixing in hostages among their combatants. HUMAN SHIELDS.
