At least 18 people were killed and at least 75 injured on Tuesday, October 6, when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) blast occurred near a bus station in Al-Bab (Aleppo province).

The Syrian Civil War - which began in 2011 - involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.


Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country completely.

Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
