Police officers at Al-Nabek police station were quoted by Syrian news Agency (SANA) as saying that some 70 people were on board when the buses collided.

One of the buses had its tire burst, causing the driver to lose control of the coach at high speed and hit the oncoming bus head-on, SANA added.

Both buses were completely destroyed, with 15 people killed instantly and five others dying later at a hospital.
Some of the injured were said to be in critical condition while others sustained bruises and broken bones, SANA said.
