News 11 killed in suspected Daesh attack on Syria truffle hunters: monitor

BEIRUT: An attack by the Daesh group killed at least 11 people hunting desert truffles in northern Syria on Sunday, a war monitor said, after the latest such incident.
Between February and April each year, hundreds of impoverished Syrians risk their lives to forage for the delicacy in the vast Syrian desert — a known hideout for terrorists that is also littered with mines.
Desert truffles can fetch high prices in a country battered by 13 years of war and a crushing economic crisis.
