Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as al-Nusra Front, an affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria, is evacuating its bases near Syria's Aleppo, Al Arabiya News reported Wednesday, citing a source from within the group.

MOSCOW, September 24 (RIA Novosti) - Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as al-Nusra Front, an affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria, is evacuating its bases near Syria's Aleppo, Al Arabiya News reported Wednesday, citing a source from within the group.

"Al-Qaeda's Syria affiliate, al-Nusra Front, evacuates bases in populated areas in Idlib countryside - Nusra fighters," Al Arabiya said in a tweet.

Jabhat al-Nusra is among the groups, whose facilities are being targeted by the US-led coalition against terrorism, which started carrying out airstrikes in Syria earlier this week. One of the organization's leaders, Abu Yusuf Turki, was reportedly killed in an airstrike earlier on Wednesday.
