Residents in the Syrian town of Kfar Daryan emerge from their homes to assess the damage inflicted by the first U.S.-led airstrikes targeting Islamic militants. Video obtained by Reuters shows the aftermath. Locals say four rockets were fired in the city, and one struck the headquarters of the al Qaeda-linked militants, al-Nusra Front, killing two of its members. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) LOCAL MAN, ABU OSSAMAH SAYING: "At 3 am this morning people were sleeping in this residential, under-privileged area. When we were sleeping, we were surprised by the sound of the bombs. We heard more than three big bombs and we have not heard such big bombs before." But one of the rockets also hit a house that was a home to a displaced family from Aleppo, killing 13 people including three children. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) LOCAL MAN, ABU OSSAMAH SAYING: "The military headquarters are far from the city and located in the mountains. The city does not host any military headquarters. All the people that were killed today were displaced civilians who moved from Aleppo, fearing the bombs of Bashar Al Assad, the Syrian President." Rights groups say the US and its partners carried out at least 50 air strikes on Islamic State and other militant targets, killing dozens of the group's fighters.
