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.
