US insists al-Jinah raid targeted al-Qaeda, not mosque

The US has denied hitting a mosque in Syria where activists say dozens of people, mostly civilians, were killed.

The Pentagon said the US targeted an "al-Qaeda gathering across the street from a mosque", and released footage showing that a mosque next to a destroyed building remained standing. It said the photo was taken less than five minutes after the strike on Thursday.

Syrian opposition activists said at least 40 people were killed in the Omar Ibn al-Khattab Mosque in al-Jinah village in Aleppo province.

They accused the US of carrying out the raid.

Friday prayers were cancelled across rebel/terrorist-held parts of northern Syria after the raid.
