«We did not request the regime’s permission. We did not coordinate our actions with the Syrian government,» State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement…….

«We did not provide advance notification to the Syrians at a military level, or give any indication of our timing on specific targets. Secretary Kerry did not send a letter to the Syrian regime.» However, after President Barack Obama’s speech earlier this month setting out his plan to target militants from the Islamic State group in both Iraq and Syria, Washington had told Syria’s envoy to the UN that the jidhadists would be targeted.
