Syria: Death Toll Rises to 100 in Aleppo Blast

At least 100 people, including women and children, have been killed and hundreds more wounded in a suicide bombing near Aleppo that struck a bus convoy evacuating people from besieged towns of Fua'a and Kafraya in Idlib province.

A Syrian bus convoy transporting the residents of two Shiite-populated towns in Idlib being evacuated in a deal between warring parties hit by a huge blast. The explosion hit al-Rashideen district on the Western outskirts of Aleppo as buses were stopping at a checkpoint on Saturday afternoon.

A delay in the agreement reportedly left thousands of evacuated people stranded at two transit points on Aleppo’s outskirts since late Friday. The buses were waiting to take people who were evacuated from Fua'a and Kafraya from militant-held territory into the government-controlled city.

According to latest reports, terrorists reportedly loaded the car in which they hid the bomb with children’s food supplies to sneak it into the area.

At least 100 people were killed and more than 500 others sustained injuries. A Facebook page belonging to the pro-government al-Foua and Kafraya villages stressed that all those in three buses were killed or were still missing.

Several hours after the blast, Syrian media and the Observatory reported that the population transfer resumed.

The Syrian Army and militant groups had agreed to allow over 3,500 militants leave four towns Northwest of Damascus in return for the evacuation of 8,000 civilians from Fua'a and Kafraya in the Northwestern Province of Idlib in several phases.

Based on an agreement concluded in late March between the Damascus officials and gunmen, around 3,800 fighters and their family members are to leave the towns of Madhaya, Baqin, al-Zabadani and al-Jabal al-Sharqi for militant-held region in Idlib via four passageways.

In return, 8,000 residents of Fua'a and Kafraya will leave their towns for government-controlled regions in Aleppo province.
