US rules out coordination with Syria as it spies on jihadists

Rebel fighters walk in front of damaged buildings in Karam al-Jabal neighbourhood of Aleppo on August 26, 2014The United States has begun reconnaissance flights over Syria to track Islamic State jihadists but insisted it has “no plans” to coordinate with Syria on targeting the militants. Numerous sources said foreign drones had been seen, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reporting that “non-Syrian spy planes” had on Monday carried out surveillance of IS positions in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor. The surveillance is seen as a precursor to possible US air strikes on jihadist positions, similar to those being carried out in neighbouring Iraq. It comes after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime said on Monday it was willing to work with the international community, including Washington, to tackle extremist fighters.
