BEIRUT (AP) — The Latest on the developments in the Syrian civil war (all times local):

9:50 p.m.

The U.S. State Department says it is “saddened and horrified” by the news of the killing of seven Syrian first responders in their base in the country’s rebel-held Idlib Province.

Spokesperson Heather Nauert condemned the killings in a statement released Sunday.

The Syrian Civil Defense, popularly known as the White Helmets, has been applauded globally for braving air strikes and artillery fire to rescue civilians in Syria’s unforgiving war zones.

Dozens of its first responders have been killed in the line of duty. But seven were killed in their sleep early morning Saturday in Sarmin, Idlib. It was not immediately lear who was behind the killings.
