    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, JANUARY 15 - A car bomb that exploded north of Aleppo near the Turkish border left at least 26 people dead, the Syrian National Observatory for Human Rights made known Wednesday.

    The body count could increase as many were seriously injured, the human rights observers said, adding the attack was carried out by an Iraqi-Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate based in the town of Jarablos.

    Also on Wednesday, an al-Qaeda leader of Belgian nationality who went by the name of Abu al-Bara was killed in northern Syria, local activists in the Idlib region told ANSAmed via Skype.

    Bara was known as ''the Belgian emir'' and as the ''emir of Saraqeb'', a northwestern town that has seen fierce fighting between between Syrian rebels and the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Neither report has yet been independently confirmed.
