UPDATE: The United States gave Syria advance warning before airstrikes began against ISIS in its territory, the Syrian government said this morning.
According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Washington told Damascus’ envoy to the United Nations shortly before the U.S.-led aerial assault began. It also said Secretary of State John Kerry sent a heads-up to Syria’s top diplomat via Iraq’s foreign minister. The U.S. government has not confirmed the communication took place.
