Foreign-backed Syrian militant groups have detonated bombs to destroy a critical bridge which connects Latakia city in Aleppo on Friday.

Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood militants linked to the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) destroyed the bridge, according to Al-Alam news Channel.

A video aired two days ago shows pictures purported to “David brigade” mostly made up of Turkmen Islamists backed by Turkey’s intelligence apparatus. The bridge is near Basanqol in Jabal al-Zawiyah in Idlib Province.

The explosion has hampered agricultural products and goods transfer from Ar Raha and Latakia, preventing refugees of Idlib Province to return to Latakia.

Armed militant groups attributed to have links to so-called FSA targeted infrastructures including power stations, bridges and roads allegedly upon orders by Turkish intelligent system to limp life in the restive country since the conflict broke out in Syria two years ago.

About 120 bridges, some the largest in the Middle East, have been destroyed by saboteurs and terrorist groups since the beginning of the crisis.
