On January 25 eve, a booby-trapped car exploded in the Turkish-occupied city of Azaz in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.
Opposition activists shared a video showing the moment when the explosive-laden car blew up near Azaz’s main fuel station. Other videos on social media showed the aftermath of the blast.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), eight civilians were killed and at least 20 others were injured as a result of the bombing.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, some opposition activists said, as usual, that the attack was plotted by Kurdish forces.
Azaz explosion is the most recent in a series of bombings that’s targeting Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria. Hundreds were killed or injured in these bombings over the last few months. However, Turkey is yet to take any serious measure to improve security in these areas.
