Obama directed Pentagon to eliminate leaders of Jabhat al-Nusra


U.S. President Barack Obama ordered the Pentagon to find and eliminate the leaders of the terrorist group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra).

The change in the U.S. priorities in Syria were caused by fears of terrorist attacks in the south of Europe.

As reported by TASS with reference to the Washington Post, Obama thinks that the territory of Syria controlled by Jabhat Fateh al-Sham can become a basis for organizing attacks. It was noted that the White House now considers fighting terrorists a higher priority than the pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
