Posted on

At least 14 people were killed Sunday when a car bomb went off near a hospital in the rebel-held Syrian town of Atmeh, near the border with Turkey, opposition activists said. The bomb exploded near Orient Hospital, run by an opposition activist group that also runs a television station with the same name.

Orient TV reported that 50 others were wounded in the explosion, and a large part of the hospital was destroyed.

Atmeh, in Idlib Province, houses a large refugee camp for displaced Syrians.
