Representative of Damascus Shiites: Dead Bodies of Syrian Evacuees Taken by Turkey.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The representative of Damascus Shiites said that Turkey has taken away the dead bodies of the Syrian people killed in the terrorists' recent car bomb attack near Aleppo to use them as a bargaining chip in future negotiations with Damascus and its allies.

"The terrorists are after imposing new conditions on Damascus and its allies through their cowardly terrorist attack on the oppressed residents of Fua'a and Kafraya in Aleppo's Rashideen region," Seyed Fadi Borhan told FNA on Monday.

Noting that equations have changed after the Rashideen blasts, he said, "The bodies of nearly 42 martyrs of the blasts have been taken away to Turkey and Ankara intends to use them as a bargaining chip in future negotiations."

Toll of the terrorists' attack on a group of women and children of Fua'a and Kafraya who were evacuating two Idlib towns climbed to 125 with hundreds more injured near Aleppo.

A Syrian bus convoy transporting the residents of the two Shiite-populated towns in Idlib under a deal between warring parties was hit by a huge blast on Saturday. The explosion rocked al-Rashideen district in the Western outskirts of Aleppo as buses were stopping at a checkpoint on Saturday afternoon.

A delay in the agreement reportedly left thousands of evacuated people stranded at two transit points on Aleppo's outskirts since late Friday. The buses were waiting to take people who were evacuated from the two towns of Fua'a and Kafraya that were besieged by the militants to the government-controlled regions.

According to latest reports, terrorists reportedly loaded the car in which they had hidden the bomb with children's food supplies to sneak into the area.

Local sources confirmed on Sunday that the Syrian Army troops have restarted evacuation of civilians of Fua'a and Kafraya to safer regions.
