    5 people killed in suicide attack in Idlib city: activists

    (Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 5 people have been killed in a suicide attack in the northwestern province o Idlib city, local activists said on Wednesday.

    The bomb attack targeted commanders from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the neighborhood of Jbara.

     No rebel group has claimed the responsibility for the attack as activists accuse the Islamic State. 

    Meanwhile, Regime-run media said regime forces and their allies are approaching a sprawling rebel-held air base of Abu Zuhour in Idlib from different directions.

    Recapturing the Abu Zuhour air base, which the rebels took in 2015, has been one of the main targets of a major regime offensive into Idlib that began in late October. The attack also aims to secure the road liking the capital, Damascus, with the northern city of Aleppo, Syria's largest.

    The regime-controlled Syrian Central Military Media said on Wednesday that Syrian troops are fighting militants, including members of al-Qaida-linked Levant Liberation Committee, in different areas near Abu Zuhour.

    The regime offensive has displaced tens of thousands of people who fled toward areas close to the Turkish border.
