A young girl was killed and two other children were injured on November 29 when a booby-trapped motorcycle blew up in the city of Jisr al-Shughur in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

According to opposition sources, the attack took place in the western district of the city, which is a known stronghold of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP).

The victim was identified as Samar Mohammed Deeb Hayhano. She was severely wounded in the explosion. A while later, she died at a nearby hospital.

A coalition of al-Qaeda-affiliated groups and Turkish-backed groups occupied Jisr al-Shughur in 2015. The majority of the locals were expelled from the city and replaced with foreign terrorists, mainly from the TIP.

No group has claimed responsibility for Jisr al-Shughur bombing, thus far. Internal conflict between jihadist is usually behind such attacks.

Greater Idlib is now under a ceasefire agreement that was brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5. The situation in the region is far from stable. Terrorist groups are only provoking government forces, but also each other.

Oh man, this is horrible. They WAHHABIS MUST BE DESTROYED AND IDLIB LIBERATED.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Poor child no matter what side her parents are on, no child deserves to die for their parents sins, that’s if her parents were on the wrong side, it’s unstated.

But I am wondering who the hell’s attacking the TIP Uighurs and what’s the reason for attacking them, there’s been no infighting or conflicts with other opposition groups that I know of, and except for Russia blowing them to smithereens a few times lately, they’ve actually been having a good run with everyone.
The Uighurs in Syria are the worst of the worst terrorists, they burnt down every Christian Church and murdered as many Christian priests as they could find in their territory, and they got away with it too, the UN was too busy criticizing China for treating them so badly they forgot to pay attention to what the Uighurs were doing in Syria, but China was, it started locking up even more of them when they saw what the Uighurs were doing in Syria.
