Missile Attack Kills 10 Syrian Soldiers In Syria

At least 10 Syrian soldiers were killed after a missile struck their bus in the country’s western Aleppo province early on Friday.

Terrorists targeted a military bus with “anti-tank guided missile in Angara area at 9:30am local on Friday morning,” the official news agency SANA reported. Another nine soldiers received injuries in the attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the area where the attack was carried out is dominated by Yayaat Tahrir al-Sham, the al-Qaeda linked militant group.   

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that it is not yet clear whether the attack was conducted by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, which SOHR described as the most powerful armed group in the region, or other opposition forces.

Friday’s attack is the deadliest since a ceasefire agreement between Syrian government and the opposition brokered by Russia and Turkey in 2020.

The opposition group has a large presence in Idlib province and parts of the neighboring Aleppo, Hama and Latakia provinces and the Syrian regime scrambling to retaken those areas.
