Late on October 3, a large explosion rocked the Turkish-occupied city of al-Bab in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.
According to several sources, a booby-trapped car exploded next to a checkpoint of the Free Police, a law enforcement body backed by Turkey. The targeted checkpoint is located near a local market on one of al-Bab’s gates.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said three policemen were killed as result of the explosion. Around seven other people were injured.
This was the first deadly bombing in Turkish-occupied areas in northern Aleppo this months. Over the last few months, dozens of civilians and militants were killed in similar attacks.
No group has claimed responsibility for the new bombing, yet. Nevertheless, Kurdish forces and ISIS cells remain the two main suspects.
The new bombing is another testimony to the state of lawlessness prevailing over Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Aleppo, where even the “police” can’t protect themselves.
