Abstract : In this paper, we consider the following nonlocal fractional Laplacian equation with a singular nonlinearity
(-\Delta)^{s}u(x)=\lambda u^{\beta}(x)+a_{0}u^{-\gamma}(x), ~ x\in \mathbb{R}^{n}
where $0<s<1$, $\gamma>0$, $1<\beta\leq\frac{n+2s}{n-2s}$, $\lambda>0$ are constants and $a_{0}\geq0$.

We use a direct method of moving planes which introduced by Chen-Li-Li to prove the positive solutions $u(x)$ must be radially symmetric and monotone increasing about some point in $\mathbb{R}^{n}$.
Keywords : fractional Laplacian, negative powers, method of moving planes, radial symmetry.
