Six workers were killed and 16 others injured on Sunday, the Syrian state news agency SANA reported.
The blast was "set off by an armed terrorist group on a road in Idlib, which exploded as a minibus passed by," SANA reported.
The attack reportedly took place on the side of the road linking Ariha and Al-Mastuma in Idlib, near the Turkish border.
Events in Syria are hard to independently verify amid tight government restrictions on media coverage.
The agency reported that security services dismantled two other explosive devices on a road in Jabal al-Zawai, also in Idlib.
