Afrin’s car-bomb explosion | Nearly 40 people killed and injured in civilian area, close to security post of Turkish-backed factions
Aleppo Province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored a spike in the death toll of a car-bomb explosion in the centre of Turkish-held town of Afrin, north of Aleppo. At least seven people, including a doctor, were killed while the number of injured rose to more than 30, including children.
The death toll is expected to rise as many injured in serious conditions.
It is worth nothing that the blast occurred in a busy area near a market in the city, close to a security post of Turkish-backed factions.
SOHR activists said earlier that three people were killed and more than 15 others were injured as an initial toll, following a car-bomb explosion this evening at the roundabout of “Kawa al-Haddad” in the centre of Afrin.
SOHR sources have reported hearing a loud explosion in the city of Afrin, which is under the control of Turkish-backed factions in northern Aleppo province, caused by a car-bomb exploded near the garage of the city of Afrin, leaving casualties.
