(Zaman Al Wasl-AA)- At least five civilians were killed and scores injured in a car bombing in north-western Syria on Saturday, according to the White Helmets civil defense agency.
The bombing rocked the center of opposition-held Idlib city, causing heavy damage to houses and cars, White Helmets director in Idlib Mustafa Haj Youssef told Anadolu Agency.
He said the injured were rushed to nearby hospitals in the area.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
At least 15 people, including members of former al-Qaeda group, were killed on Friday in a series of attacks throughout the northern province, local reporter said.
Four members from Tahrir al-Sham were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up in the group's bastion in the town of al-Dana.
Also four fighters from Tahrir al-Sham were killed when unknown assailants opened fire on their vehicle near the town of Maaret Misreen.
Seven more people were killed in different security incidents in Idlib.
The state of security chaos has been continued in Idlib province as tens of Tahrir al-Sham members have been killed in the last few weeks.
The formerly known as Nusra Front says the attacks have been carried out by sleeper cells led by the Russian air base in Hmeimym.
Idlib has been a haven for tens of thousands of rebels and 2.3mn civilians who were forced to abandon their homes in other parts of western Syria that the regime and its foreign military allies have recaptured from rebels.
In relevant assault, five White Helmets volunteers killed in a pre-dawn attack by assailants on their center in the town of Tel Heddiya in the southern countryside of Aleppo, Ahmed Hamish, head of the center told Zaman al-Wasl.
Syria has been locked in a devastating war since March 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity. UN and local monitoring groups says more than 400,000 people have been killed and million have been displaced.
