This image made from amateur video posted on an activist social media account early Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows an explosion in the village of Kfar Derian, Syria. The Syrian foreign ministry said Tuesday that Washington informed Damascus’ envoy to the United Nations before launching airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Syria, attacks that activists said inflicted casualties among jihadi fighters on the ground. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group,  said missiles also targeted the village of Kfar Derian, which is a base for the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front, which is a rival of the Islamic State group. Abdurrahman said those strikes appear to have been carried by the U.S. (AP Photo/amateur video via AP video)
