Apr 16, 2017-

A suicide car bomb attack on buses carrying Syrians evacuated from two besieged government-held towns killed at least 43 people on Saturday, as US-backed fighters advanced in their push towards the Islamic State group’s Raqa stronghold. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the vehicle exploded next to buses carrying residents evacuated from the northern towns of Fuaa and Kafraya under a deal reached between the regime and rebels. The attack, in Rashidin, west of Aleppo, also wounded dozens, according to the Observatory and an AFP correspondent on the scene.
