Twin bombings kill at least 15 people in Syria’s Idlib city | Battle for Idlib News

A double bomb attack on Monday in Syria’s northwestern city of Idlib killed at least 15 people, including four children, a war monitor reported. Dozens of others were wounded.

The first blast was caused by an explosive device planted under a car in Qusour neighbourhood during rush hour, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

A motorcycle bomb then detonated after ambulances arrived at the scene of the first blast, said the group, which relies on a network of sources based in Syria for its information.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack which the Syrian Observatory said also wounded at least 50 others.

The Local Coordination Committees and the Syrian Civil Defence, a group of first responders, also reported casualties.

The city has been hit by a series of bombings in recent months that have killed or wounded scores of people.

The Observatory and Civil Defence earlier reported government shelling of rebel-held towns south of Idlib, saying several people were wounded.

‘Salvation Government’

Idlib, the last major part of Syria still outside the control of President Bashar al-Assad’s government, is dominated by an alliance led by Syria’s former al-Qaeda affiliate, Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

The group took administrative control of the entire region last month after overpowering smaller Turkey-backed rebel factions.

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, ISIS) also has sleeper cells in Idlib.

A local office of the “Salvation Government”, an administrative body created by HTS, is located on the street targeted in Monday’s attack.

Four HTS fighters were killed in the blast, the Syrian Observatory said.

Idlib has been protected from a planned Syrian government ground attack – backed by air power from its Russian ally – since September by a buffer-zone deal agreed among Damascus, Moscow, and Ankara.    

Nearly eight years into the devastating war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people, the Syrian government controls nearly two-thirds of the country.

A bride made the devastating decision to cancel her wedding to her partner of seven years after her dad revealed the ‘sexist’ demand his family had made behind her back.

The dad says his daughter got engaged recently and he had always been fond of her fiancé, who he thought of as “kind, humble and always respectful to our family”.

However, he says when he has met the man’s family for dinner on a couple of occasions, they made remarks towards his daughter which made him feel uncomfortable, including: ‘I don’t know why you’re working, isn’t that the husband’s job? It’s the mother’s job to be taking care of the children’.

As his daughter pair pressed ahead with their plans for the ceremony, the dad says her fiancé arranged a meeting with them both and his parents, adding that his daughter couldn’t be involved.

Previously, Gordon was slammed for the size of his steak and chips, was told to “get a grip” for the price of his fry-up and criticised for the roast which was compared to a ‘child’s portion’.

But the latest customer to be disappointed by the TV chef’s food was Simon, who visited the three Michelin star restaurant with friends, Daily Star reports.

Simon was ‘insulted’ after receiving a “preselected” cheese board, and took to TripAdvisor to leave a two-star review.

Their review said: “I visited GR hospital road on a Friday night with friends for a special treat.

Cooking pizzas for the whole family should be quick and easy dinner option – but it usually also throws up a headache.

With only one small oven to get the job done, we have to decide between either cooking one at a time and eating separately, or attempting to rotate them every few minutes to cook them evenly.

But one mum has revealed a painfully easy solution to get three frozen pizzas on one shelf, giving her room to put chips on a tray below – and you’ll wonder why your brain has never come up with the solution itself.

Posting on the Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas Facebook group, the mum demonstrated how she cuts the frozen pizzas in half before arranging them all on a single oven rack, making use of all available space.
