DAMASCUS, April 15 (Xinhua) -- An explosion on Saturday targeted the gathering point of buses transporting Shiite people evacuated from two pro-government towns in northern Syria, killing many people Cheap Air Max Online , a well-informed source told Xinhua.

The blast, which is believed to have been carried out either by a car bomb or explosive devices, rocked the rebel-held Rashideen area in the countryside of Aleppo Province, where buses were to carry 5,000 pro-government Shiites to government-controlled areas in Aleppo Cheap Air Max Sale , after the reactivation of a recent deal reached between the rebels and the government under the supervision of Iran, Turkey and Qatar.

The deal was designed to secure the evacuation of the people from the pro-government Shiite towns of Kafraya and Foa in Idlib Province to government areas in Aleppo Province.

The Shiite people reached the rebel-held town of Rashideen, while the rebels reached the government-controlled Ramouseh crossing in Aleppo.

He added that three women gave birth inside the buses amid tough humanitarian situation and people have been waiting there for 24 hours without enough food or water.
