Jalabiyeh plant in Syria set on fire

The international coalition has set fire to LafargeHolcim’s Jalabiyeh plant, just north of Aleppo near the Turkish border, Syria, to prevent the Syrian Arab army taking possession of the plant, according to Réseau Voltaire.

"On Oct. 16, after all Coalition personnel and essential tactical equipment departed, two Coalition F-15Es successfully conducted a pre-planned precision airstrike at the Lafarge Cement Factory to destroy an ammunition cache, and reduce the facility's military usefulness," US Army Col Myles Caggins, a spokesman for the US-led military coalition fighting ISIS, confirmed in a statement Wednesday. 

The factory has been at the centre of a French investigation regarding the supply of cement to jihadists during the war in Syria.
