Seven White Helmets killed in extremist-held Syria

White Helmets
Unidentified assailants shot dead seven members of Syria's White Helmets rescue service early Saturday during a raid on their base in a extremists-held northwestern town, the group said.

The attackers struck in the town of Sarmeen, nine kilometers east of the city of Idlib, which is controlled by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham extremist alliance.

"The civil defense center in Sarmeen was the target of an armed attack by unknown assailants in which seven volunteers were killed," the White Helmets said in statement.

"Two minibuses, some white helmets and walkie-talkies were stolen."

It was not immediately clear whether the motives for the raid were political or purely criminal.
