Syrian Jets Bomb Rebel Towns Near Iraq

AMMAN — Syrian jets bombed on Saturday rebel-held eastern areas close to the border with Iraq under the control of the name Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, killing and injuring dozens in stepped up raids against the militant group since its Iraqi offshoot made stunning gains in northern Iraq.

Five raids killed at least 16 people and injured dozens more when bombs hit residential areas in the town of Muhassan just over 60 miles from Iraq, a day after tribal elders in the town along the Euphrates River pledged allegiance to ISIS.
