Syria opposition urges US strategy change

Rebel forces, citing civilian deaths from government air strikes, want coalition to target Assad regime along with ISIL.

    About 400 civilians have died in government air strikes in Syria in the past month alone, according to activist figures.

    The military is hitting rebel forces as the US-led coalition targets ISIL fighters in the north. But the Syrian opposition wants the coalition to fight Bashar al-Assad's government as well.
