A booby-trapped car exploded on August 24 inside Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) so called “security zone” in Idlib’s city center.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that one person was killed and eight others were injured in the blast. The causalities have not been identified, so far.
“The death toll is expected to raise due the presence of many wounded, some of them are in a critical condition,” the UK-based monitoring group said in a report.
Opposition news outlets released videos from the explosion site showing extensive damage in nearby cars, vehicles and buildings.
Many of HTS’ security headquarters and other facilities are believed to be located in the security zone, which occupies a large part of the civilian al-Qusur district.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, so far. However, opposition activists accused ISIS cells, the Syrian and Russian intelligence as usual.
