    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least 26 Islamic State (IS) militants were killed in the US-led coalition’s airstrikes in northern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on Tuesday.

    According to the monitor, the airstrikes took place not far from IS stronghold Raqqa city. Most of the militants were Syrian, and their bodies were delivered to the city.

    "Bodies of some of them arrived in form of pieces," the monitor said.

    Islamic State is a militant jihadist group which has taken over large parts of Iraq and Syria and been making attempts to branch to other countries as well.

    The coalition has carried out more than 40 airstrikes in both countries last week.
