"Thirty terrorists were killed and dozens of others were wounded in two air strikes" in the town of Azzan, General Ahmed al-Maqdashi said in a statement published on the defence ministry website.

A local official in the town said earlier that a US drone struck a house and a car, killing nine militants.
