In Syria, convoys of buses have arrived near the Lebanese border ahead of a plan to exchange 9,000 rebels with the Nusra Front and their relatives for imprisoned members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia, who support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The exchange came as heavy fighting continued to rage around the ISIS-held city of Raqqa in northern Syria. The journalistic monitoring group Airwars reports a U.S.-led coalition leveled a home in Raqqa Friday, killing 15 members of the Al-Zana family, including eight children. Airwars also cited separate U.S.-led attacks in Deir ez-Zor that killed five civilians.
