Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group, said missiles also targeted the village of Kfar Derian, which is a base for the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front, which is a rival of the Islamic State group. Abdurrahman said those strikes appear to have been carried by the U.S.
