TAMPA, Fla. —  U.S. forces conducted an airstrike on an Al Qaeda in Syria meeting location March 16 in Idlib, Syria, killing several terrorists.

Idlib has been a significant safe haven for Al Qaeda in recent years.

In January, a strike destroyed an Al Qaeda terrorist training camp, where more than 100 fighters were being trained in terror tactics.
