Syria base at­tacked

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AN al- Nusra Front sui­cide bomber has killed 25 Syr­ian sol­diers and fight­ers loyal to Pres­i­dent Bashar al- As­sad in an at­tack on an army base in western Aleppo, ac­tivists say. The at­tacker blew him­self up in­side a ve­hi­cle “in front of an or­phan­age used by the regime as a base in Al Zahra neigh­bour­hood,” the op­po­si­tion Bri­tain- based Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights di­rec­tor Rami Ab­del Rah­man said. Once a pow­er­house of in­dus­try, Syria’s sec­ond city of Aleppo has been dev­as­tated by years of fight­ing be­tween regime forces and a suc­ces­sion of rebel groups. The gov­ern­ment largely con­trols the city’s west.
