DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:20 P.M.) – On Sunday morning, two suicide bombers infiltrated an area controlled by Ahrar Al-Sham in eastern Idlib and detonated tons of explosives inside a military base at Tall Al-Toukan.
The suicide bombers carried with them powerful homemade bombs concealed in bags and subsequently entered a camp where some 200 Ahrar Al-Sham recruits were undergoing training. At least 20 fighters were killed in the explosions and dozens more wounded.
As of yet, no faction has taken responsibility for the suicide bombings. Nevertheless, rebel factions blamed the attack on the Islamic State.

Hundreds of ISIS sleeper cells are still active inside Idlib province while the Mukhabarat (Syrian intelligence) also conducts operations behind enemy lines. Meanwhile, sporadic infighting has also resulted in countless assassinations and car bomb attacks.
