BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:55 P.M.) – Not long after the first transportation convoy reached Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, a group of jihadist rebels opened fire on the second batch of buses attempting to reach these besieged Shi’i towns in the Idlib Governorate.

According to activists in besieged Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, the second batch of buses was targeted by jihadist rebels as they were driving down the road to the towns – the fate of the bus drivers is still unknown.

As a result of this attack by jihadist rebels, the buses in Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya were told to remain in the towns until further notice due to security concerns posed by the militant groups in the Idlib Governorate.

The random attack by jihadists in the Idlib Governorate today will likely delay the transport of civilians and militants in the eastern pocket of Aleppo.
