Is this the latest bombing of wedding party because of celebratory gunfire?

NY Times:

U.S. Says It Struck Al Qaeda; Syrians Say Mosque Was Hit

The military said that it had carried out an airstrike against Qaeda militants, and that a nearby mosque was still standing.
I am skeptical of claims that a mosque was hit.  It looks like another attempt to inflame radical Islamists by a losing enemy.  When the war was young these claims were usually made based on a claim that those shooting at the aircraft were celebrating a wedding.  It is a classic victim strategy effort that I am not buying.
