Suicide attack target Ahrar al-Sham group in Syria’s Aleppo: Monitor

BEIRUT: A suicide bomber driving a fuel tank blew himself up on Monday at a checkpoint run by Islamist group Ahrar al-Sham in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo killing at least seven of its members, a monitoring group said.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that four of the group’s commanders are believed to be among those killed. Ahrar al-Sham officials were not immediately available for comment.

The Britain-based monitoring group said that the attack in the Sukari neighborhood in the city destroyed three nearby buildings and wounded dozens of people while many are believed to be stuck under rubble.
