Security chaos in Turkish-backed areas | Two unidentified persons throw grenade at traffic police checkpoint in al-Bab city centre
Aleppo Province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this evening the explosion of a grenade thrown by two unidentified persons on a motorcycle, following a dispute with traffic police at Al-Center roundabout in al-Bab city centre, which is under the control of Turkish-backed factions in Aleppo countryside. The explosion injured two civilians who were near the site of the explosion.
On July 28, SOHR sources reported that the Turkish-backed military police and factions of the “National Army” launched a new security campaign in Al-Bab city in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo.
The security campaign, which came with the purpose of arresting several suspected of “corruption and gun possession”, sparked fierce clashes between the rebels and military police on one hand, and gunmen from “Aal Waki” family (a prominent family in Al-Bab city) on the other. The clashes, accompanied by exchange of fire, ignited a state of panic among the city’s residents.
