Suicide Bomber Slams Explosives Car in Idlib; Scores Killed,Injured in Rebel-Held Syrian City

A suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into a gathering of jihadist rebels near the rebel-held northwestern Syrian city of Idlib yesterday, killing and injuring scores of people, the VOA News website reports today (July 13, 2017).

Idlib province is dominated by Islamist jihadist groups, although there is a presence of moderate Free Syrian Army groups.

The Syrian province -- which borders Turkey -- has long witnessed infighting between the main jihadist groups vying for power.

Although opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad rule, insurgents are riven by deep divisions on ideology and rivalry that sometimes erupt in deadly clashes.
