A meeting place of the militant group Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, formerly known as the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, was destroyed in the Salah al-Din neighborhood of Aleppo Wednesday, the Syrian military said in a statement.

 

The statement also said stores of arms and ammunition were destroyed in the old city area. It did not say whether there were any casualties.

 

Syrian rebels say that insurgent-controlled eastern Aleppo has been under the control of rebels fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and not the Nusra Front.

 

Alongside hard-line jihadist group Islamic State, Nusra Front was excluded from cease-fires which the United States and Russia have tried to implement in Syria this year.
