DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6: 00) – A massive blast rocked the rebel-controlled city of al-Bab, killing and injuring at least 25 militants.
The explosion, which hit a headquarter for the Turkish-backed Sultan Murad Brigade, has killed 10 militants, including 2 senior military commanders, and wounded 15 others.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but local reports pointed fingers at an ISIS suicide bomber who blew up his explosive vest inside the building.
The slain militants originally belong to the FSA-affiliated Ahrar Homs; an armed faction which fought the Syrian Army in the central city of Homs. Once evacuated from their last bastion of al-Waer as per a deal with the Syrian government, those militants joined the Turkish-sponsored Sultan Murad Brigade in the city of al-Bab.
