WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States on its own has carried out an air attack in Syria on what it calls an al-Qaida affiliate west of the city of Aleppo.

U.S. Central Command says American warplanes launched eight airstrikes "to disrupt the imminent attack plotting against the United States and Western interests" by a network of "seasoned al-Qaida veterans" - sometimes known as the Khorasan Group - who've established a haven in Syria.

They targeted training camps, an explosives and munitions production facility, a communication building and command and control facilities.
