A huge explosion ripped on Sunday (May 21) ‎through a military headquarters of Ahrar al-‎Sham, a powerful opposition group, in Idlib countryside. The explosion killed and injured many of the group’s members.

"An vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) exploded today ‎in one of Ahrar al-Sham’s headquarters in the town of Tel Toqan in Idlib eastern countryside, killing 26 and ‎injuring more than 40 of the group’s members," Orient ‎News correspondent said.

In a statement published on its social media platforms, Ahrar al-Sham accused ISIS terrorist organization of carrying out the attack and explained how the attack was carried out.

“One of ISIS elements rode a bomb-laden motorcycle toward one of Ahrar al-Sham headquarters in Badia sector. He parked the motorbike amid a gathering of revolutionaries and blew himself and the motorbike up simultaneously,” the statement said.

It is worth mentioning that Ahrar al-Sham was preparing today to graduate a new group of fighters when the explosion took place.
