At least 35 militants from different groups were killed and many more were wounded in ISIL's suicide bombing at Idlib province's border with Turkey, opposition sources confirmed Saturday.

"An ISIL suicide attacker stormed a bus carrying tens of militants trying to enter the Turkish territories via Adena border crossing, killing at least 35 fighters," Hesam al-Idlibi said, adding, "The militants in the bus were to move toward Jarabulus in Northern Syria via Turkish land."

"Chairman of Aleppo's Supreme Council of Judges Sheikh Khalid al-Seyed, Shadow Deputy Governor of Aleppo Mohammad al-Faraj and Hosham al-Khalifeh, a commanaer of Ahrar al-Sham were among the killed militants in Adena attack.

Most of the killed militants were the members of Ahrar al-Sham, Faylaq al-Sham and al-Shamiyeh Front.

Southern Idlib was the scene of fierce clashes between Ahrar al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa on Friday, and scores of militants from both sides were killed or wounded in the clashes.

"Ahrar al-Sham fighters arrested a number of Jund al-Aqsa near Saraqib and stormed the house of Ali al-Issa, one of the commanders of Ahrar al-Sham, that resulted in the escalation of infighting among the rival terrorist groups," sources said.

"In Khan Sheikhoun, Jund al-Aqsa captured Ahrar al-Sham positions and then the town," they added.

In the meantime, Syrian fighter jets bombed heavily a base of the terrorists in the Eastern side of al-Dana, leaving scores of militants dead.
