More than 100 fighters aligned with Syrian President Bashar Assad were killed after U.S.-led coalition and coalition-backed local forces thwarted a large, apparently coordinated attack late on Wednesday and early on Thursday, a U.S. official said.

Syrian state television confirmed the attack, calling it a "new aggression" and "an attempt to support terrorism."
