Buses burned on way to evacuate refugees from Syria
« on: December 19, 2016, 12:51:09 AM »

Buses on the way to evacuate civilians in besieged areas of Syria have been attacked. Despite the incident, around 350 people were able to leave a rebel-held area of east Aleppo late Sunday.

Gunmen attacked the buses on Sunday as they were heading to the pro-regime, Shiite towns of Foua and Kefraya in Idlib province, where thousands of civilians remain trapped.

While some buses were able to enter the towns, as many as 20 buses were set upon by rebels, who forced the drivers to get out, shot at the vehicles and then torched them, AFP news agency reported. Both Syrian state media and the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the attack, with the latter pinning the blame on the al-Qaeda-affiliated Fatah al-Sham Front.


The incident sparked fears that a renewed effort to evacuate the besieged city of Aleppo could be jettisoned. Plans to help civilians and rebels in the opposition-held pockets of the city have already faced hurdles over the past week, though one military source said the attack in Idlib shouldn't affect the operation.
