TEHRAN (FNA)- Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists hijacked a passenger bus carrying tens of Syrian civilians in Northern Syria.
The terrorists of the Al-Nusra Front abducted more than 40 passengers, including women and children, traveling in Reef (countryside of) Aleppo in Northern Syria on Tuesday.
The abducted passengers were residents of Nabal and Al-Zahra towns in Reef Aleppo.
The bus was moving Aleppo-Idlib road when the Al-Nusra terrorists hijacked it near Al-Zorbeh town.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
