At least 16 people have been killed in two car bomb attacks in Syria’s Idlib Province near a border post with Turkey.

6 terrorists were among the casualties from the attacks which also left 20 other people injured.

One of the attacks took place inside the Bab al-Hawa border post and the other one hit a checkpoint just outside the crossing.



The Bab al-Hawa crossing has been reportedly controlled by jihadist mercenaries fighting one against the other, between al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in recent weeks.

Elsewhere, in the Christian town of Saidnaya near the capital Damascus, two mortar shells fired by foreign-sponsored militants hit a school and St. Georges Monastery. There has been no immediate report on possible casualties.

The analysis also said that a large number of extremists from foreign countries are active in Syria.
