Aleppo Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR activists have documented hearing an explosion in Tel Al-Hawa camp of the Turkish-backed “Sultan Murad” in the countryside of Al-Ra’i in northern Aleppo. SOHR initial reports confirm that an officer was killed, while others sustained various injuries.
According to military sources, the reason behind the explosion remained unknown, while other sources have suggested that the explosion was caused after a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the headquarters where officers were present.
A few hours ago, SOHR sources reported that a media activist survived an assassination attempt, as unknown gunmen opened fire on him in Afrin city, while he was on his way home.
On February 16, SOHR activists reported hearing a loud explosion in Afrin city, which is under the control of Turkish forces and their proxy factions in north Aleppo countryside. The explosion was caused by the detonation of an IED in a car in Al-Mahmoudiyah neighbourhood, which injured a person seriously.
SOHR sources reported earlier that day a violent explosion in Al-Bab city, which is controlled by Turkish forces and proxy factions in the east Aleppo countryside, caused by an IED exploded in a van near al-Centre roundabout at al-Nasr mosque in al-Bab city centre.
