ATWEH , Syria, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- At least 20 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a northeastern Syria refugee camp near the Turkish border Thursday.
The Islamic State claimed responsibility on social media for the attack at the Atmeh refugee camp in Syria's Idlib province. It occurred during a shift change at a checkpoint of the Free Syrian Army, when a suicide bomber entered the camp and detonated his explosive vest. Multiple people were injured; the most severely injured were taken to hospitals in Turkey. The bomber is believed to have targeted Turkish-backed rebels within the camp.
