Late on September 26, a large blast rocked the outskirt of the Turkish-occupied town of Ras al-Ain in the northern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah.
A booby-trapped car reportedly exploded near a metal scrap yard in the industrial zone, that is located south of Ras al-Ain’s town’s center. The explosion resulted in serious material damage and casualties.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, seven people were killed and more than 12 others were injured.
Local security forces, which are backed by Turkey, speculated that the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, YPG, and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, PKK, were behind the car bomb attack. Per usual, no evidence was presented.
Turkish forces occupied Ras al-Ayn and dozens of other town and villages in northeast Syria in October of Last year. Since then, dozens of bombings targeted the region. Scores of civilians, Turkish-backed militants and even Turkish service members were killed.
While Turkey and its proxies hold Kurdish forces responsible for most of the attacks, they are yet to take any measures to secure the areas occupied by them.
