    Syria: Rebel leader killed in car bombing

    March 3, Damascus: A car bombing targeting an influential Syrian rebel group has killed at least 18 people in Quneitra province of the country's south, as opposition groups elsewhere in Syria accused the government of breaching a truce.

    The car bombing on late Wednesday targeted the Syria Revolutionaries Front's local finance office in al-Ashe, a village on the outskirts of southern Quneitra near the border with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

    Armed group's leader Muhammad al-Qairi, also known as Abu Hamza al-Naimi, as well as three other leaders were among those killed in the bombing.

    In addition to a "metre-deep whole in the street", the explosion destroyed the SRF's finance office and badly damaged several nearby residential buildings, he added.

    Jolani's video footage of the attack's aftermath was published by Qasioun News, a local Syrian agency.

    The SRF is part of the Southern Front, a broad alliance of rebel groups operating in several provinces in southern Syria.

    No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
