On Saturday a suicide car bomber targeted stranded buses holding thousands of evacuees on a road near Aleppo, detonating the improvised explosive device inside the vehicle, killing well over 100 persons in the surrounding area.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 112 people were killed in the blast by anti-Assd forces. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres condemned the attack and called on all parties “to ensure the safety and security of those waiting to be evacuated.” As hostilities continue in the kill zone.
Disaster unfolded as the blast struck thousands of people who were left stranded in two separate convoys on the edge of Aleppo city in Syria for more than 30 hours Saturday.
Syrian Residents from pro-government areas including Foua and Kfraya were involved in a “transfer” with those from rebel held areas like Madaya and Zabadani. The buses had been held up by a disagreement between the two sides about how many rebel gunmen could be evacuated without further delay.
Once the victims were removed hours after the explosions, the transfers resumed with more than 100 buses from both sides arriving at their destinations.
