BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Survivors of the bus attack that left over 100 people dead described what happened when buses carrying civilians from the besieged towns of Fua and Kefraya to the safety of government-controlled areas of were destroyed in a suicide bombing, speaking from Fua on Wednesday.

One man recalled how only the Red Crescent had aided them, taking them to field hospitals in Sarakeb and the Aleppo University Hospital.

“They treated us very bad, they did not let us leave the buses. There were women and children with us, and closed the doors on us in the scorching weather, they did not let us drink water, they did not let anyone deliver us food”, he added.

Another resident explained how he had seen a man counted to three on his fingers, before exploding a van, which was surrounded by children. He said that the Turkish and Syrian Red Crescent aided people, giving a loaf of bread to people to share between groups of four. The man said that the passengers of the buses were treated like “animals”.

“My heart is broken for my kidnapped wife and daughter and each kidnapped person from Al-Fouaa and Fafarya”, he said.
