Al Qaeda-linked militants control wide swaths of northern Syria, mostly in Idlib province, the last major rebel stronghold in the war-torn country.

U.S. military officials said northern Syria remains a "safe haven" for Al Qaeda leaders actively coordinating terrorist attacks.

"With our allies and partners, we will continue to target [ISIS] and Al Qaeda to prevent both groups from using Syria as a safe haven," the statement said.

It's been more than two years since the U.S. military struck al Qaeda fighters inside Syria.
