Syria: Deadly ISIL suicide bombing

World Bulletin / News Desk

The attack in the opposition-held town of Hraytan, north of Aleppo, in Syria on Thursday was carried out by ISIL, local civil defense sources said.

At least 20 people were killed, and dozens injured, when a bomb-laden vehicle exploded at a marketplace, they added. 

Turkish Anadolu Agency's photojournalist Saleh Mahmoud Laila was also killed in this suicide attack 

Laila, 27, had survived an airstrike by regime forces last July in Aleppo’s al-Zahraa neighborhood, suffering multiple burns.

He was sent to Turkey for treatment and later returned to Aleppo to cover the conflict.

Laila’s photos documenting the Syrian civil war have been published by major media outlets.

Laila was born in 1988 and is survived by his pregnant wife. 

Syria is considered one of the deadliest countries for journalists, with at least 84 reporters killed since the conflict began in 2011, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
