( CNN) About 100 people were killed Saturday in a car bomb explosion targeting pro-regime evacuees leaving besieged Syrian cities, a volunteer save organization said.

The blast, which struck buses of people who were leaving their cities as part of a rebel-regime barter, also injured 55 others in Rashidin, a suburb of Aleppo in northwestern Syria, according to Syria Civil Defense, well known the White Helmets

The convoy of bus, which were parked at the time, was carrying thousands of people from two regime-held but rebel-besieged villages in northwestern Syria, state-run media reported. People were evacuating two rebel-held towns in southwest Syria at the same hour under a so-called Four Towns Agreement.
