A car bomb killed 10 people in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province on Saturday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, reported on Sunday.

The UK-based Observatory said the bombing targeted a market in the town of al-Dana, on the outskirts of Idlib.

There has been no claim of responsibility so far. However, a local opposition source told DPA that “sleeper cells” linked to the ISIS group were behind the bombing.

Three people under 18 were among the dead and the blast also injured at least 30 other people, it said. Another bombing in the town after midnight on Friday killed two people, it added.

Idlib province is a major stronghold of rebels in Syria and is situated along the border with Turkey.

The United Nations and aid agencies have voiced concern about the humanitarian situation in Idlib, where large numbers of people live in poor conditions and face aerial bombardment.

Syria’s civil war has lasted over six years, killed hundreds of thousands of people, driven millions more from their homes in a global refugee crisis and dragged in regional and world powers.
