    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, MAY 13 - Syrian opposition forces have killed 10 Syrian pro-government forces in northern Syria in an attack with the highest death toll since a truce was reached two years ago.

    The attack was via a missile that targeted the vehicle the troops had been travelling in, reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) on Friday.

    It is not yet clear, the NGO said, whether the attack - which happened in the western part of the Aleppo province - had been conducted by the jihadist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, the most powerful armed group in the region, or other opposition forces.
