The attackers stole two vehicles and other equipment in the incident targeting a civil defence office in the town of Sarmin at dawn. Idlib province in northwestern Syria is controlled by Syrian rebels groups.

The civil defence, otherwise known as the "White Helmets", operates in rebel-held areas of Syria.
