This is just one of many in store for the poor people there. No respite, just look at Iraq.
Carnage as suicide bomber kills 51 people in Syrian town just hours after it was taken from ISIS by Turkish-backed rebels
- A suspected ISIS jihadi detonated a car bomb inside a Free Syrian Army position
- The attack took place in the village of Susian, five miles from the town of Al-Bab
- Turkish-backed forces seized the village overnight which is close to the frontier
- Human rights observers said the attack was probably conducted by ISIS
A suicide bomber attacked Turkish-backed rebels just outside the Syrian town of Al-Bab Friday, killing 51 people in a major blow just hours after they hailed its capture from ISIS.
The bomber blew up a vehicle packed with explosives outside a rebel command centre in the village of Susian, five miles northeast of Al-Bab, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The blast devastated the twin command posts and also seriously wounded a large number of fighters, the Britain-based monitoring group said.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility. In a statement distributed online, the group said its suicide bomber ‘drove his car bomb into the middle of a gathering of Turkish soldiers and apostates working in Susian’, about five miles from Al-Bab.
