Turkey shells Syria’s northern Idlib province

This photo released Sunday, Oct 8, 2017 by the al-Qaida-affiliated Ibaa News Agency, that is consistent with independent AP reporting, purports to show al-Qaida-linked fighters from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham or Levant Liberation Committee walking inside the Syrian village of Abu Dali in Idlib province, after they captured it from Syrian troops. The fight in Abu Dali comes amid reports of an imminent Turkish-backed operation in northwestern Idlib province against the militants. Arabic reads, “Jihadists from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham inside Abu Dali village after liberating it.” (Ibaa News Agency, via AP)
