The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed on Monday (May 22) the responsibility for a suicide attack which targeted the major opposition fighting group Ahrar al-Sham’s headquarters in Idlib province on Sunday (May 21), which killed and injured dozens.

ISIS’ media outlet, Amaq, cited a “security source” that two simultaneous explosions, using a bomb-laden motorbike and an explosive vest, were carried out by an ISIS member.

The explosion was reported on Sunday (May 21) in an Ahrar al-Sham’s headquarters in Tel Toqan in Idlib eastern countryside. The death toll was put at 26 fighters from the group and many were reported wounded.

Ahrar al-Sham issued a statement in which it blamed ISIS for the attack, and vowed that such attacks would not weaken its fighters’ resolve.
