• Truck bomb in Syria’s Aleppo kills 23


    BEIRUT: At least 23 people, most of them from the Ahrar al-Sham rebel group, were killed by a truck suicide bomber in Syria’s Aleppo city on Monday, a monitor said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 19 fighters from the group and four civilians were killed in the blast in the Sukari district of the city. It was unclear who was responsible for the blast, but Ahrar al-Sham has been targeted by assassinations in the past. In September 2014, most of its top leadership was wiped out in a devastating explosion at its headquarters in Idlib province that killed nearly 50 people.
