Bomb blast kill 12 people in Syria

Intro

Fifteen people, all but two civilians, were killed in an explosion in the jihadist-held region of Idlib in northwest Syria on Wednesday, a war monitor said.

The cause of the blast in the town of Jisr al-Shughur was not immediately clear, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

“The explosion hit next to the market,” killing 13 civilians, including the daughter of a foreign fighter, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

 

“It is not known until now whether it was a car bomb, or the explosion of a car carrying explosives,” he added.

The Idlib region is under the administrative control of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate.
