Syria evacuations resume after deadly bombing that killed dozens, including 70 children

Evacuations from four besieged areas of Syria resumed on Wednesday, Syrian state television, a Hezbollah media unit and a war monitor reported, days after a suicide bombing killed dozens in a convoy which was part of the same reciprocal agreement, CBC wrote.

Some 45 buses carrying 3,000 people left the rebel-besieged Shia villages of al-Foua and Kefraya near Idlib for government-controlled Aleppo, while a convoy of 11 buses left army-besieged al-Zabadani, the Hezbollah media unit said, CBC indicated.

On Saturday, a bomb attack on a convoy of evacuees from al-Foua and Kefraya killed 126 people, including more than 60 children, the war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported.
