BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – A new drone strike was reported on Saturday in northeast Aleppo, marking the second time this week that an attack like this has been carried out in northern Syria.
According to pro-opposition activists, the unknown drone struck a motorcycle near the city of Al-Bab, which is currently under the control of the Turkish-backed militants.
Following the strike, an identification card was found among the debris; it belonged to Ahmad Darwish of Al-Dabiq.
Darwish was reported dead, as was the other passenger who was riding on the targeted motorcycle.
No one has claimed responsibility for this drone strike.
Earlier this week, a U.S. drone strike two commanders of the Hurras Al-Deen group in the Idlib Governorate; this rare attack marked the first time that the American forces had bombed Idlib since killing the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, near the turkish border.
