Car Bomb In Syria's Idlib Province Kills 10 - War Monitor

 A car bomb killed 10 people in Syria's rebel-held Idlib province on Saturday (June 24), the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, reported on Sunday (June 25).

The attack occurred in a market in the town of al-Dana, located in the north of the province near the border with Turkey, according to the Observatory.

Three people under 18 were among the dead and the blast also injured at least 30 other people, it said. Another bombing in the town after midnight on Friday (June 23) killed two people, it added.

Video released on the internet by the civil defense group known as the White Helmets showed firefighters attending to a number of burning vehicles and people being carried away to waiting ambulances.

Rebel groups in Idlib province have been sporadically fighting each other since early this year. Rebels have also accused the Islamic State militant group of carrying out attacks in the area.

Idlib province is a major stronghold of rebels in Syria and is situated along the border with Turkey, one of the main backers of their rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad.
