Rabat – A car bomb has exploded at a convoy of buses carrying Syrian evacuees in Rashidin, near Aleppo, killing at least 16 people.
They had been waiting since late Friday for the buses to start moving, when the “Four Towns” deal stalled. According to Reuters, a military media unit, operated by Hezbollah, has said a suicide attacker detonated a car bomb Saturday.
Pictures released in the aftermath of the explosion show bodies on the ground, both dead and injured. Fire and heavy smoke are shown billowing high into the air.
According to BBC News, the “Four Towns” deal was meant to relieve the suffering of approximately 30,000 people. Thousands of civilians ended up stranded in areas under siege. The UN estimates that about 64,000 people remain “trapped in a cycle of daily violence and deprivation.”
