Bodies lie strewn across streets following istanbul blast
A suicide bomber has killed more than 100 people in an attack blamed on IS in the city of Aleppo, a local official said on Monday.
Local sources said several car bombs were believed to have exploded in the eastern parts of the city in a coordinated assault.
Al Jazeera’s Mary Muscatine, reporting from the Syrian capital, Damascus, said the toll could rise.
„It is a very sad day… for the victims of this attack and their families. These are civilians who were just sitting around eating a cup of coffee,“ Muscatine said.
Local media say Syrian armed forces have already retaken the town of Maarat al-Numan, located some two hours away.

„It is a really horrific attack and the impact is really terrible,“ said Muscatine, who added that the Syrian army could retake the town in 슬롯 머신a few hours‘ time.
„They were shooting from the ground as a result of their heavy shelling from the area in SM 카지노recent hours.“
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, said at least 40 people had been killed after an explosion struck a bus near a bakery.
Another report said the army had launched an offensive to capture the nearby town of Qusayr, which is also known as Palmyra in Arabic.
Residents of Maarat al-Numan said in an interview that IS had used a „horrifyingly precise, high-explosive“ explosive, which shattered windows and left people fleeing in panic.
„It appears that the bomb exploded with such speed that it caused such a large amount of damage that buildings collapsed and people were fleeing the area in all directions,“ said Hala Abdul-Moualla, 60, a resident of Maarat al-Numan.
Maraa al-Akkar, a witness to the attack, said he saw a woman and child fall into the blast site and died.
„This is the worst day in the city since the Russian air strikes began,“ said Muhannad, who has been in Aleppo for seven years.
„They have cut people off in multiple directions from one another,“ Muhannad said. „I heard the blast and people started running away.“
